Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 9, 2006
Dr. John G. Flores, CEO of The United States Distance Learning Association, today announced his organization's sponsorship of "Distance Learning Today," a quarterly supplement in USA TODAY. "Distance learning is transforming the American educational landscape, through on-line technology, video conferencing systems, satellite delivery and other media," Flores said. "We expect this supplement to be an invaluable guide for millions of present and potential distance learners as well as a means for our member institutions and corporate sponsors to reach them."
The first supplement will appear in September and is expected to exceed twenty pages. Editorial will include features on the distance learning revolution, financing a distance education, increasing acceptance of distance learning degrees among employers, technology requirements and, importantly, how to evaluate the quality of a distance learning offering. "Today, there are thousands of institutions offering degrees and certifications for distance learners," Flores said. "It's timely to provide the public with a reliable information resource concerning this dynamic educational alternative."
