With the news that there are now over 3.5 million people taking online education courses in the US, the need for the Distance Learning Colleges Guide website has never been greater. Although the current numbers are impressive, they're just the tip of the iceberg with colleges and universities stating that once people better understand what's involved when studying online, these figures are expected to treble. Knowing what to expect is where the Distance Learning Colleges Guide comes in.
"One of the reasons I set up the site was that I knew from personal experience how daunting it can be when it comes to online education," says Rose Syons, founder of Distance Learning Colleges Guide. "I always felt that the process could be simpler, and that if it could be simplified, then it'd open up the fantastic opportunities online education offers. Now anyone that has the slightest interest in gaining a degree can come to our website and know that they can find all the answers they need, about any aspect of online education."
These aspects include explaining in easy-to-understand terms what's involved in distance learning. The website will demystify the whole online learning process by providing information on the benefits of distance learning, advantages and disadvantages of distance learning, and how you can choose the best accredited online college or university. You'll find out why college accreditation is so important and why it can make a big difference to your success and educational goals. You'll also find information on how you can check if a college of your choice is accredited or not.
As well as offering information on various distance learning terminology, the Distance Learning Colleges Guide website will also allow you to contact colleges for free information about what they can offer you. This unique and helpful approach will let you compare the colleges available to you, to help you make informed decisions.
"With so many employers now embracing online education and accepting online degrees just as equally as the traditional kind, knowing what's available and practical to study online is so important," adds Syons. "We know that you have the desire to further your education online, but may be put off by a lack of knowledge about online degrees, where and how to choose one and if they're valid for employment. Now you don't have to worry, because we have all the answers and advice you need in one easy-to-use place."
With the higher pay a degree can offer, and the flexibility to study at your own pace, online education is an option to consider and the Distance Learning Colleges Guide website can steer you on the path to get that better job tomorrow.
