Distance learning

Posted on Monday, May 14th 2007 2:33 am by menj in Offbeat

In today’s globalised world, there are various ways where one can further his or her education without physically going to a classroom or having to look for accommodation in order to attend a university or college. Distance learning is not a new thing but the Internet have changed the way it is conducted. One would have to agree that taking a degree would go a long way into securing your future and make your resume more appealing to employers.

Now you can take an education course at Capella University, a long-distance online university which offers various programmes such as a master degree in various fields such as business, information technology, education, human services, and psychology, and bachelor’s degree programs in business and information technology. They have qualified staff as well, such as Sara Olem, a faculty member who recently launched her new co-authored book, “Appreciative Coaching: A Positive Process for Change“. Their courses are accredited so there are certainly no worries about recognition of the course by educational bodies.

Check out their website today and you might find a course that may interest you.

      Hi all,
      I have a plan to do MBA from an online college, but before taking admission I want to know about the advantages of distance learning education so I can see if it’s best for me. I’ve never done it before and it will be a major decision in my life. Please help if you have any information on this. Thanks for your help.

      Is it considered equal to taking the course at an institution or less by employers?

      I have a degree in business administration and planning to do my Msc in finance course by distance learning.

      I need it to be distance learning as i’m currently pregnant and most courses are 2 years. I need distance learning so i can still learn while the baby is around and allows me to be flexible with when i work. I was thinking beauty therapy? I would have a wide range of models to work on. I wanted to train as a counsellor but most courses would like you to be 25. Any suggestions? I would it to be focused around helping people. Thanks!

      Why did you choose distance
      learning over a traditional face-to-face learning environment? In what ways has your view
      of distance learning changed since you started your classes?

      I’ve some questions about distance learning :
      – Are the degrees we obtain from distance learning similar to those offered in normal courses ? And are the chances to find a job equal ?
      – Do prestigious universities (like Yale, Brown…) offer distance learning courses ? If yes, is it cheaper ?
      – How do exams work ?

      Thank you in advance.
      Thank you very much bezi_cat

      What are your thoughts about this university. Has anyone gained licensure after completing the counseling program?

      Am considering a distance learning course that would enable to me to eventually get a foot in the door to working with special needs children. Which would be the ideal course to take? Child care & development? Teaching assistant course? To those that have already been there and done that which courses did you take?

      Hi

      I am looking for a distance learning course to do from home for fun. Not neccesarily academic courses, just for my own entertainment. I have already done Open Uni courses and none others take my fancy right now.

      Thanks for any info.

      I will off course give best answer nomination as normal!
      Hi all

      The course I am considering would be fun, no specific qualification / accreditation needed – simple for interest or fun.
      Not particularly bothered about topic.

      Just looking for interest.
      Stonebridge.co.uk look like they offer various relevant courses distance learning, anyone got any knowledge / experience with them?
