How the Newest Film in the Harry Potter Universe Ties into Online Learning Fantastic Beasts

Harry Potter fans everywhere eagerly await the arrival of the franchise’s newest film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which premieres in November. This entry into the world of witches and wizards features a mostly new set of characters and is based on one of the fictional textbooks used to educate students at Hogwarts. The new film follows author Newt Scamander as he chronicles the different creatures that could be encountered in the magical world.

The ninth foray into the magical realm of Harry Potter takes place about 70 years before Harry is born, and the book created in the film will eventually become required reading for every Hogwarts student. To celebrate the newest film in the franchise and our love of learning, we’ve rounded up a list of the ways eLearning relates to this magical world of wizardry.

Instant communication

In Harry’s world, you need to hire or own an owl to send a message; owls deliver school admission letters, test results, and even grades. You don’t have to hire a bird to deliver your questions, check your grades or attend class; eLearning facilitates communication and allows you to access your information at any time.

Muggles welcome

With a few notable exceptions, Hogwarts is welcoming to students of all backgrounds and all levels of knowledge. Whether you’re an experienced pro when it comes to technology or you’re still learning, eLearning is accessible. Attending class, handing in work and communicating with others is easy, and even those who don’t have a lot of experience with the magic of the Internet can swiftly catch up with their more tech-savvy peers.

Learn where you live

While the students at Hogwarts travel from home to attend school, they learn, live, eat and play in the same environment, eliminating the need for a long commute. E-learning allows you to take classes and do coursework at the time that is most convenient for you and from the comfort of your own home.

High-quality materials and education

The first of three movies on the topic, Fantastic Beasts is centered around the research and writing of a textbook; 70 years later that book is still being used to teach classes at Hogwarts. Online classes use a mixture of tried and true materials with a rich history (like the eponymous Fantastic Beasts film) and the latest research and technology to provide a high-quality education experience designed to help you get the results you want.

Ready for more of the Harry Potter universe? When the new film premieres on November 18th, we’ll be ready; until then, enjoy the magic of online coursework and the benefits of learning where you live, on your own terms.
