How to Prepare for your First Online Course
Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) October 9, 2007
Millions of adults would love to go back to school, but the overwhelming task of determining which school to attend, getting financial aid and finding time keeps many adults from pursuing a degree. To help make the process easier, eLearners.com offers the comprehensive "Guide to Online Education." The guide features research, advice and "how-to" sections answering the most common online education questions.
The guide, first launched in January 2007, now offers information on the eLearners.com Debt-Free College Guide, which addresses ways to fund online education, as well as new online degree "mini-guides" and articles on distance learning accreditation.
"The guide is updated constantly with new information from online students, professors, graduates and online learning experts," said Andrew Gansler, President of eLearners.com. "Online education is constantly evolving and we make sure that the latest topics and questions are covered."
According to an independent study for Capella University titled "Degrees of Opportunity", more than half of the survey respondents said they would like to pursue additional education - which is equivalent to more than 70 million Americans. With millions of people interested in going back to school, the eLearners.com "Guide to Online Education" serves as an easy-to-read guide so that prospective students don't have to do hours of research on various sites.
The "Guide to Online Education" allows visitors to compare online learning providers, view profiles from current and former students about what it is like to get a degree online and read "how-to" guides, with topics from "How to Prepare for your First Online Course" to "How to Keep your Kids Busy while you Study."
"Millions of people think about going back to school, but don't know where to begin," continued Gansler. "This guide gives people the launching point they need to feel comfortable in pursuing a degree online."
Online education is a booming field in the education industry. In fact, the Sloan Consortium found more than 90% of public institutions now offer online courses as more and more adults go back to school to pursue their education. According to the "Degrees of Opportunity" study, the number of adults that are 25 and older and enrolled in college has tripled since 1970. Millions of these students are turning to the Internet to get their education because of the flexibility and convenience of studying online.
