San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
Academic-Services.com (http://www.academic-services.com) will begin offering free, online webinars in early 2009 to help future and current college students succeed. Students and parents will be able to interact in these live, online webinars with the host speaker and guest speakers of Academic-Services.com.
The technology is provided by WebEx, a Cisco Company. Its online webinar software allows multiple participants to join and to interact in a live, online environment. Features include videoconferencing, messaging, polling, and document presentation. Anyone with Internet connection, with or without a webcam, can join the webinar.
"This is truly a revolutionary and highly productive technology," states Trung Le, a college philosopher instructor and founder of Academic-Services.com. "I am now able to use this technology to offer online lectures, offer review sessions, and student conferences for my philosophy courses, which are spread out across three cities."
Professor Le lives and teaches in San Jose, commutes 300 miles a week to teach at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, and also to De Anza College in Cupertino. "I can now interact with my students even if I'm not in the classroom. The best part is that all of my students across the various colleges can join the webinar to interact with another."
Professor Le established his private consulting business in 2008, but has advised, coached, tutored, and mentored many of his own students ever since he first taught four years ago. "I chose to teach philosophy for a reason, and that reason is to inspire students to live more passionate, happier, and productive lives. In the process, I also found myself being an academic advisor and mentor to many of my own students."
One of his former students is now studying philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley. Another former student is now studying conservation biology at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Testimonials of Professor Le's former students can be found at the Le Foundation web site at http://www.le-foundation.org, and will soon appear on Academic-Services.com.
