and Online Education Information
Millions of college students take courses and even get entire
degrees via the Internet. The quality of on-line courses is in
most cases equal to, if not superior to regular classroom
courses. With the costs of transportation such as gasoline,
insurance, parking, and maintenance going up, plus the time it
takes to drive to campus. it's no wonder on-line learning is
more popular than ever. It really is in your interests to find
out more to see if these kinds of courses fit your needs.
As with any
important decision, before entering into any online education
contract, always be sure to check the institution for
accreditation, all application and matriculation fees, and also
be sure to get a list of the faculty and their qualifications.
follows is some general information and help in making a
decision. I have designed and taught online courses at both the
undergraduate and graduate levels, and I believe that the
learning experiences in these courses were at least equal to, if
not superior to those of regular classroom courses. To assist
you, I have devised a scale that helps determine whether you
have the aptitude to benefit from online courses. Please

Career teachers require a combination of qualifications,
experience and continuing education. In addition to a formal
qualification, good teaching requires commitment to the ongoing
acquisition of skills and learning. Further, promotion, career
advancement, and salary are often linked to postgraduate
qualifications, such as Continuing Education Credits or
a master’s degree in Education. However, for most
teachers the demands of a full academic timetable leave little
time and energy for professional development.
Many people see online study as an isolating experience but, in
fact, successful online classes develop a sense of community,
with email communication, shared lesson plans, discussion forums
and real-time interaction in some situations. The variety of
online programs is growing exponentially; giving a range of
study that is the equivalent of courses available on-campus. An
online format allows teachers to take advantage of uncommitted
time in their schedules and gives access to courses that could
not be attended physically because of geographical and teaching
constraints. The right course can complement the ongoing
teaching syllabus, giving an immediate boost to students.
Online Education Schools for Teacher Programs
I used to have many links here to
schools, colleges and universities that offer online programs
and onlline degrees. However, since almost every institution
offers some sort of online program, I felt it best to just tell
you to simply enter "online education" into one of the popular
search engines such as Google, Bing, or Yahoo and get thousands
of links and make you own decisions..
ONLINE EDUCATION IN OTHER FIELDS --TECHNOLOGY, LAW. HEALTHCARE,
are increasing opportunities to take courses and earn degress in
online experiences. In today's fast moving world, most adults
will change careers at least twice. Online education can be a
way to make it happen for the better!
Benefits of an online education
An online qualification might be useful for the individual to
progress his or her career, but it can have a positive result for more than the
participant. Employers also benefit from the in-house expertise in web research and
teaching techniques using online technologies, and access to the wider academic
community. Anyone who seeks a challenging and useful learning experience need
look no further than a computer with Internet access to get it all.
