Calgary, AB (PRWEB) May 1, 2006
A new interactive education quiz on WorldWideLearn.com, the world's premier online directory of education, elucidates the best learning format for would-be students. The quiz is designed to help individuals choose between programs offered on campus or online by assessing their learning styles, computer proficiency, and personal requirements. Respondents answer a series of 26 self-assessment questions before seeing recommendations based on their answers. Anyone considering enrolling on a course or even earning a degree could benefit from completing this easy and quick online assessment.
The WorldWideLearn.com questionnaire consists of three parts designed to assess learning style, computer proficiency, and personal requirements. The questions certainly seek to evaluate the respondent’s knowledge of computers and the Internet, but are equally concerned with personal and practical elements influencing the choice of learning format. Responses are evaluated immediately and respondents see a recommendation regarding their aptitude and readiness for online or campus-based learning.
The last question in the quiz recognizes and addresses the issues surrounding the reputation and credibility of online degrees. While acknowledging that campus-based learning is the more traditional choice WorldWideLearn.com also points out that online education is on the rise, quoting the Sloan Consortium. This group of institutions and organizations is committed to quality online education, and from 2003 to 2004 it saw a 22.9% increase in online enrollment from 1.98 million to nearly 2.5 million. WorldWideLearn.com speculates that this growth is a reflection of a busier generation of learners, along with a trend among career-focused adults to continue working while earning advanced degrees in their spare time.
