Learning ASL Series
The four Signing Online courses are:
- Beginning ASL (ASL 101) – learn the basics of the language and simple conversations.
- Basic ASL (ASL 102) – based on what you learned in Beginning ASL, you will learn additional vocabulary, more and more advance conversation.
- Intermediate ASL (ASL 103) – expanded learning enables you to express and comprehend more advanced signs and finger spelling
- Advanced ASL (ASL 104) – this course ties together all that you have learned and you will now have the knowledge to enhance your fluency and continue your learning in ASL.

For classrooms and groups our online curriculum is taught and tested online. Lesson plans are shown on the landing page under the video. Just click on the course name or number. Enhancements for larger groups include a "Guided Reading" manual and a separate administrative program page showing the students progress, time and grades. The Guided Reading manual can be downloaded and copied for students. Schools often use Beginning(101) and Basic(102) for YEAR ONE, with Intermediate(103) and Advanced(104) for YEAR TWO.
For students working individually our online curriculum is taught and tested completely online ($75.00/course level/6 months access). Individuals working alone without curriculum supplementation often take all four course levels in one year to optimize the time requirements for credit.
Lesson plans are shown on the landing page under the video. Just click on the course name or number to see what we have available. Independent students can adjust the workload to fit the time/workload requirements by using one course level each semester/term with the downloadable Suggested supplementary curriculum guide with "E-Z American Sign Language" (Amazon <$20.00) offline to augment the online studies.
It is up to you and your school to decide what is needed to receive the credit. Most schools require the student fulfill a certain number of hours and may possibly have to demonstrate their signing ability. This can be done with an ASL Interpreter at the school or a trusted deaf individual in the community with ASL expertise. SigningOnline also offers an optional video appraisal at an additional cost. Please see descriptions on the Instructor Support page.
Signing Online provides curriculum to high schools across the United States and Canada. THE CREDIT ALLOWED FOR SIGNING ONLINE COURSEWORK IS DECIDED BY YOU OR YOUR SCHOOL.
