CIS Online Research Program
The CIS Online Research program was launched in 2017 in our pursuit of delivering research-based learning to more students without geographic limitations. The CIS Online Research program is hosted every month of the year with a different selection of research topics across every major academic discipline. Since 2021, the CIS Online Program has produced more student research projects annually than our CIS Summer Program.
AN OVERVIEW OF THE CIS ONLINE RESEARCH
We host the CIS online research programs on a rolling basis throughout the year. With Neoscholar's in-house developed online education platform, we can offer an exciting and smooth research experience to our students regardless of distances.
A CIS program course usually hosts twenty students, who are divided into small research groups. The program is generally across ten weeks. In the final week, students will deliver a research project presentation to the professor in their research teams. Each course will be assigned an experienced teaching assistant to provide additional academic support sessions and research guidance to students.
A FABULOUS EXPERIENCE
The success of our programs is only evident from the feedback of our professors and students, and we have received very positive feedback since 2017. One professor commented that the online program "is a fabulous experience... I am very proud of the progress [the students] did in these eight weeks, and the TA is great too."
My Professor is very approachable, and his lecture is also very attractive. He gave a lot of suggestions and substantial help to my capstone project, and I like his tutoring very much. Even if I had some logical holes in my presentation, he was very tolerant and patient. I really appreciate being his student.

THE NEXT-GENERATION EDUCATION IS ONLINE
We have a simple but ambitious goal: to bring research-based learning to more students in more regions. To achieve that, we are focusing on the online education delivery model. Our online research programs are conducted via Zoom. To better coordinate the joint research writing efforts between students and professors, we have also adopted Overleaf for writing and editing collaborations.
Another key aspect of our online delivery model is the NeoSchool digital learning system. Similar to Blackboard for College students, NeoSchool has a set of features that enhance the online learning experience.
Covers the entire research-based learning process and offers automated online training on the fundamentals.
Builds a learning ecosystem by enabling easy online interactions and discussions among students, professors, and TA's.
Creates a platform for real-time feedback and comments from professors on students' knowledge and research projects.
