Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) January 16, 2007
eLearners.com, the leading resource for connecting students with online education, announced today it has forged an alliance with onTargetjobs, the leading niche Internet job board company, to power its online education directory. eLearners.com will provide onTargetjobs' business unit websites a comprehensive database of information on distance learning opportunities, including online courses, online degrees and online certificate programs, as well as a wealth of resources on the subject of online education.
"Consumer demand for online education has been accelerating over recent years, particularly among those in career transition," said Allen Paschal, CEO of onTargetjobs, Inc. "Operating some of the premier job sites in the country, it is important that we provide our visitors access to one of the most comprehensive databases of online learning opportunities."
The new online education directory will be incorporated into onTargetjobs' business unit sites, including BioSpace.com, CareerBank.com, Hcareers.com, MedHunters.com and HEALTHeCAREERS.com, as well as the 42 local career centers exclusively powered by onTargetJobs which appear across bizjournals.com, the online media division of American City Business Journals, the nation's largest publisher of metropolitan business newspapers. Visitors to these sites will be able to search eLearners.com's extensive database of over 6,000 online courses and 1,700 online degree and certificate programs by a variety of criteria, including curriculum, degree level, course level and more, and in turn receive rich, transparent and objective information about distance learning opportunities. Additionally, the online education directory will feature the eLearners Advisor® (http://www.elearners.com/advisor/index.asp), a unique assessment tool that helps prospective students determine if online learning is right for them.
"Now, consumers will have a comprehensive one stop shop for both the jobs they want and the education they need," said Andrew Gansler, CEO of eLearners.com. "At the same time, this alliance establishes a powerful opportunity for online education providers, such as colleges and universities, to tap into a base of highly qualified prospective students through their relationship with eLearners."
