With today's variety of online programs, there is a strong need for a tool like this.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2008
Students searching for the right online colleges and universities to meet their needs have a new place to turn for assistance thanks to the recent launch of EduDegreeDirectory. The online tool enables users to quickly and easily sort through hundreds of different degree programs to find the right match for them.
"In the past few years there has been a literal explosion of online programs," said Chelsea Koehnen, vice president of strategic planning for EDU Interactive and EduDegreeDirectory. "The increased range of school choices can make it hard for degree seekers to decide on the right program."
EduDegreeDirectory helps users better identify programs that fit their educational needs by providing information on literally hundreds of different programs from the associate level all the way through to doctoral. It also helps match their interests with what is currently available to them.
"EduDegreeDirectory is designed to make the decision process easier, by providing useful information and helping degree seekers sort through their options and find the right program," Koehnen said.
Located online at http://www.edudegreedirectory.com/degree-finder/, the new tool also offers students information on what is involved in different programs and it helps them see what careers might be available to them when certain degrees are sought.
With major colleges and universities offering everything from associates degree programs online to master degree programs online and beyond, it can be overwhelming for students to pinpoint a program to pursue. Koehnen states, "EduDegreeDirectory gives users the ability to not only find programs that are available, but also to learn more about how a particular degree will translate into a career down the road."
As sophisticated as EduDegreeDirectory is behind the scenes, the Web site is very easy for students to use. It walks students through an initial process that enables them to define their unique areas of interest, the level of their past education and their preferred method of learning; online or on campus. Once this is complete, the tool presents students with a listing of schools that meet their preferences.
"We are very pleased to be able to offer EduDegreeDirectory to students who are seeking reliable information on how best to meet their educational needs in the online arena," said Koehnen. "With today's variety of online programs, there is a strong need for a tool like this."
