Remote Learning Option

Many Eastern College students are pursuing a new career by continuing their education through remote learning. Our goal is to ensure our existing and new students continue to work toward their new career and a brighter future.

Remote learning is currently running in the province of New Brunswick only.

What Does Remote Learning Look Like?

  • Instructor-led classes held live on video over the Internet
  • Follow the same schedule with classes held at the same time
  • Class discussions and debates continue through video
  • One-on-one student check-ins with instructors
  • It is not online learning as you are guided through the learning with your instructor and classmates

Video games are extremely complex and there are millions of lines of code that develop every aspect of the game. From maps to characters, video games fulfill a reaction for every possible action that a player may choose. These worlds are courtesy of Video Game Developers, who are responsible for the content and environment of every video game.

With Eastern College’s remote Video Game Development program, you can get the knowledge and experience you need to pursue a rewarding career.

With modular learning, flexible online training, and job placement assistance, you will feel prepared and supported to pursue your career goals upon graduation. Contact us today to find out more about professional Video Game Development training and start down your path to success.
