Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) October 3, 2006
eLearners.com, the leading resource for connecting students with online education, today announced the launch of the eLearners.com Blog and Forum section of its website. Located at http://www.community.elearners.com, the new section provides current and prospective online learners the opportunity to share ideas, thoughts and concerns related to their online learning experience. This new functionality represents one of the only locations on the Web for peer-to-peer networking specifically on the subject of online education.
eLearners.com’s new section is broken down into two primary areas -- blogs and forums. The Blog is focused on providing a community for actual online learners to share their perspectives on online learning. Some of the subjects covered already have been time management, note taking and career selection. The Forum, in contrast, is designed for those considering online education to participate in an open dialogue about online degrees, online colleges and universities, and to get advice on other topics, such as Continuing Education Credits, financial aid and the selection process.
“While online learning has been around for quite some time, the challenges of deciding whether to go to school online, where to go to school online, and how to successfully navigate your way through school online are still areas of high concern for people,” said Andy Gansler, CEO of eLearners.com. “For students and prospective students, this is an excellent opportunity to share and get those questions answered by peers. For colleges and universities, this is a way for them to understand the sentiment and psychology of elearners -- a burgeoning population. The launch of these areas continues to demonstrate our commitment to creating the leading resource for connecting students with online education.”
Since its inception, eLearners.com has been committed to educating consumers about online education and helping them identify if online learning is right for them, as well as selecting the right institution. It has delivered on that mission by creating a comprehensive online education directory with program listings that provide prospective students rich, transparent and objective information. Additionally, eLearners has introduced such innovations as the eLearners Advisor, an assessment that through a series of targeted questions ranging from technology access and skills, to personal motivation and learning styles, that can help prospective elearners determine if online learning is right for them. According to Eduventures, the leading research and consulting firm for the education market, “eLearners.com distinguishes itself as perhaps the most user-focused OED (online education directory), with a strong set of features and relatively robust utility for prospective students.”
