"Distance Learning," a campaign by Mediaplanet, will bring readers up to speed on the rapidly changing landscape of online education.

“If we want America to lead in the 21st century, nothing is more important than giving everyone the best education possible."

Mediaplanet Publishing, global leader in themed media, will release the seventh installment of its “Distance Learning” series, which is slated to hit newsstands in the Los Angeles Times on October 18, 2013. The campaign will provide 1.4 million readers with the insight and information to pursue any online education endeavor.

The “Distance Learning” publication will take readers through the various layers that make online education possible and accessible. With the support of United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA), Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C), The eLearning Guild, and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), Mediaplanet will raise awareness while empowering readers about the ever-changing opportunities in the world of online education —giving credibility to an industry that is widely misunderstood.

The Great Equalizer

President Barack Obama stated, “If we want America to lead in the 21st century, nothing is more important than giving everyone the best education possible — from the day they start preschool to the day they start their career.” Distance learning encompasses K-12 to higher education, continued learning, government, military, corporate and even telehealth training.

Anyone with internet access, regardless of age, lifestyle or socioeconomic background, has the ability to learn. Mediaplanet’s “Distance Learning” campaign will provide millions of interested readers with the tools to navigate through the world of online education, find the right fit among a wide range of courses, and understand the different levels of learning available. “Distance Learning” wants its readers to realize how online education is a diverse plethora of knowledge waiting to be taken advantage of. Right now, it is the most economical way an individual can pursue his or her dreams and personal interests.

Covering the most prominent aspects of the online education experience, from finding an accredited program to taking advantage of MOOCS (massive open online courses) provided by the most prestigious universities in the country, Mediaplanet is bringing together the leading organizations and thought leaders in the distance learning industry to create a unified voice, educating readers and inspiring readers to take advantage of their futures and become a part of this worldwide movement.

Mediaplanet publishes focused reports on specific business, healthcare, technology or consumer topics.
