Where can an online student go for credible advice about online learning? eLearners.com, the leading resource for connecting students with online education, has answered that question with the launch of the "Guide to Online Education." The guide is a comprehensive, free handbook for prospective and current online students. The Guide for Online Education, located at http://www.elearners.com/guide, features simple-to-navigate, concise, yet in-depth, research, advice and "how-to" sections to answer online learners' questions.

From its more than eight years serving prospective online students and universities, eLearners.com has culled from emails, industry research, FAQ's, personal experiences and collective knowledge to create the definitive guide to online education, covering such areas as:
- Going Back to School--Are you ready? How do you get ready? And, how do you get your
family on board?

online? Degree vs. certificate? Credit vs. non-credit?

The Guide also provides profiles of actual online students, showing first-hand what it's like to be an online learner. "This is the next chapter in eLearners.com's commitment to becoming the single-most intelligent resource for those interested in online education," continued MacDermott.
The announcement of eLearners.com Guide to Online Education comes on the heels of eLearners.com's announcement of its Online Education Blogs & Forums area, which provides current and prospective online learners the opportunity to share ideas, thoughts and concerns related to their online learning experience. Additionally, eLearners.com offers a comprehensive online education directory with program listings that provide prospective students rich, transparent and objective information. eLearners.com has also 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, can help prospective elearners determine if online learning is right for them.
