The Hannaian Research Institute & Online Academic Programs

A special area of focus in intellectual property development is the Hannaian Research Institute's Online Course Development System (OCDS), which develops and licenses specialized online courses to educational institutions and colleges. HRI has developed proprietary state of the art technology and its online education delivery platform, which it also licenses to teaching institutions needing to deliver their courses online.

“The Hannaian Difference” in Education: Revision

“The Hannaian Difference” in Education 

  • HRI utilizes accepted standardized testing (SSAT, PSAT, SAT, ACT, Graduate & Professional Exams, etc.) wherever possible to measure the  success of students in course content and in critical thinking & analysis. A “Results Oriented” approach. While education is about collaborative learning, it is also about competition and a “Hannaian Education” is built around both concepts, and designed to produce the kind of results accepted & necessary to compete in the highly competitive modern global economy.
  • Our goal is to make and keep the Brand “A Hannaian Education”, associated with only the absolute best in academic quality & achievement. Our courses are designed to bring out the best in each student and produce only top level achievers. Students who cannot achieve at these levels in respective coursework are identified early in the process and provided with the option of completing remedial work if applicable. Underachieving students will not be allowed to delay the progress of those capable of high achievement. Each course therefore has a remedial prerequisite which an underachieving student will be offered if they are underachieving at the end of the first quarter of the semester. The first quarter of the semester in all courses are designed to analyze the capacity of a student to achieve within the respective course work. Those not achieving for whatever reason at the expected level will not be allowed to move forward in the regular course, and would have the option of completing remedial work before reentering the course in a subsequent semester.
  • Special content and features are built into each course like “critical thinking & analysis”, “Tech Transfer Enhancement”, “Student Group Teaching Opportunities” (SGTO), “Special delivery modes”, etc. which stamps and certifies it as a “Hannaian Course”.
  • Our Educational offerings gain their exceptionalism from being Teacher developed and based, and not generically generated and taught. HRI Course Developers and Instructors are either highly qualified academically or by their exceptional experience and celebrity in their chosen field.
  • Courses are developed and taught by the Course Developer the vast majority of the time, so that the Instructors in most courses are experts who take pride in delivering their content and tutelage and are not just performing a job teaching a cookie cutter course. Courses are therefore highly tied to the “Apprenticeship Model” where the goal is that the students learn from a “Master” and can functionally perform in the highly competitive modern global environment.
  • Course developers and Instructors are integrally involved in the operations of the Institute and receive high economic returns and investor type status for their hard work and expertise in course development and instruction. This ensures the continued excellence and exceptional quality of course development, maintenance and academic instruction.
  • There is a focus on the specialization of the course. Each course was developed for a specific purpose rather than to fill out a part of a general curriculum.
  • Strict Admission & Prerequisite standards are emphasized in order to get the best and most interested students for each course. Good students help motivate and teach each other and thus improve learning. The quality of the teacher and course developer combined with the best students defines the exceptional quality of a Hannaian Course. Each element is important. Despite what competing systems and opinions may say, the quality of the student and their interaction in the teaching environment is as important as any other factor. HRI strives to bring the best, most motivated and most educationally homogeneous students to each class. Underachieving students are not allowed to hinder the progress of super achieving students. HRI uses its proprietary “Hannaian Student Matching System” (HSMS) to match the level of students to each class. Top students take courses designed at their level. Under achieving students take courses designed and taught at their level until they can qualify to move to top tier courses.
  • The Hannaian Research Institute is a research based Institute specializing in Intellectual Property Commercialization, and Academic and International Technology Transfer. Students benefit from this background, expertise and experience in bringing innovation to global markets. Most HRI course developers and faculty are researchers and innovators in the marketplace.
  • The Hannaian Education model emphasizes delivering exceptional quality academics, versus the well documented publicly traded corporate model dominated by shareholder profit driven motives, and primary dependence upon revenues generated through governmental financing, lobbying and politics. HRI’s primary role is to facilitate the exceptional research & academic output of its affiliated faculty and researchers.
  • HRI’s role in education is to collaborate in articulation, and supplemental curricula with established, reputable, academic teaching institutions rather than supplanting school curricula, managing school operations, and operating its own diploma and degree granting alternative schools. HRI’s resources and expertise in academics is therefore solely focused on producing exceptional quality courses as a “Research and Specialized Course Development & Instructional” Technology Transfer Institute.

The Hannaian Student Matching System (HSMS)

Before being admitted to take an HRI course, a student must provide certain particulars about their education and experience whereupon if deemed adequate they will be admitted to enroll in the standard course.

Once enrolled the first quarter of each course is a probationary period wherein the students’ performance in related course work is judged as to their ability to stay current and competitive with the general body of the class. The Instructor shall at the end of the first quarter provide full enrollment privileges only to those students deemed capable of being competitive with the general body of students in the course. Those students not granted full enrollment will be offered the ability to take the standard course the next semester if they complete required remedial work as identified by the Instructor.
