James Earl Jones, the host of the popular show "In America," will introduce a segment that takes an in-depth look at the emerging trends in online education and Internet technology. Global connections are now making more online educational courses available for continuing education, certification programs, or to obtain university degrees.
Massive online open courses are available to thousands of participants from all over the world. Students with a high desire to learn more about the topics covered attend these courses. Additionally, home school programs for high school and elementary students are becoming viable online educations options for youth and children. Coursework may be offered as a blend of online and in-person sessions or may be exclusively available online.
About half of traditional schools are now offering online learning options as well. A majority of teachers feel that students have more motivation when participating in an online course. Students enjoy online learning because it gives them more control over the learning experience. Often, they can learn the course materials at their own pace, which makes the process more enjoyable. Access to more digital information is available online than what is possible in the traditional classrooms.
Other online educational trends include applying gaming designs where students are motivated through the learning process by having a game-like experience. This process of enjoying the learning experience makes students more productive and helps them retain more of the course content.
