Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) November 12, 2007
Online education is growing at an unprecedented rate with more than a million adults getting a college degree online. To celebrate the growing trend of distance learning, the United States Distance Learning Association created National Distance Learning week, which runs from November 12th-16th. The week is designed to promote and showcase distance education programs and resources. One of those resources is eLearners.com, a comprehensive and free online education destination filled with hundreds of pages of "how-to guides", financial aid resources, online communities, course and program descriptions and much more.
"More than one and a half million people are taking classes entirely online everyday," said Andrew Gansler, President of eLearners.com. "People are turning to online education because it's a high-quality education from home. By getting a degree online students don't have to drive to class, they can study in the early morning or evening and they can work at their own pace."
