Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
When online education was first developed, it was met with decidedly mixed reviews from members of the academy. The belief, widely held at the time, was that distance learning simply could not compete with the benefits provided by traditional education. Times have changed, however, and now online education is more accepted, as well as more widespread, then ever before, with even historic, traditional colleges and universities launching new virtual classroom programs. Online education opportunities are so numerous, in fact, that choosing the best one can seem daunting—but a new site, called OnlineCourseReview.net, is seeking to change that.
The just-launched OnlineCourseReview.net was designed by Jason Kay, who also serves as the company president. Kay says that the mission of the site is simple. “Choosing a college or university has always been a difficult decision, for young people as well as their families,” notes Kay. “The advent of virtual education has made it even harder, simply because there are so many online classrooms out there. Our site is meant to provide comparisons, insights, and reviews, ultimately allowing the user to make a better-informed decision about online learning.”
Kay designed OnlineCourseReview.net to be a single, comprehensive, one-stop solution for those seeking information about the leading online learning opportunities. The site offers information and side-by-side comparisons of the online courses provided by Ivy League schools and other for-profit institutions. According to Kay, the purpose is to support the online education industry even as the site helps prospective students make prudent decisions.
The heart of the OnlineCourseReview.net site is its array of editorial reviews. Featuring insight into the features and benefits offered by popular online courses, these reviews also provide chances for users to submit their own feedback. “Ultimately, we hope that the mixture of editorial reviews and user-submitted reviews will offer a well-balanced and complete picture of what different online courses are like,” offers Kay.
The bottom line, for Kay, is that the site serves an important, even invaluable role for the consumer. “An online education class is probably going to cost money, and it is certainly going to take some time to complete,” notes Kay. “That’s why it is so important that users pick courses that are going to offer the benefits they need. Hopefully, OnlineCourseReview.net will allow them to do exactly that.”
