Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) January 21, 2008
For millions of Americans considering career advancement through continuing education, online college can be a mysterious process. Education Connection, a leader in online education tools and services, today revealed the details of their success in steering prospective students toward earning a college degree. The difference-maker for Education Connection is their unique matching service pairing the right student with the right college.
"Many individuals would consider online education if they knew more about the process and the potential advantages," said Todd Zipper, Chief Operating Officer for Education Connection. "Our task is to help them make an informed choice and find the schools best suited to them."
The college matching service begins with an individual answering a few questions about their specific educational background and preferences. Upon detailing their ideal college experience, the Education Connection algorithms match their responses to the best fitting online universities. Questions explore important student concerns such as 24 hour technical support, the ability to transfer credit, financial aid options, and campus-based alternatives.
Desired degree programs and subjects of interest are other factors taken into consideration by the matching algorithms. Individuals seeking associate, bachelor, master, or doctorate degrees can be assured of finding an online school fitting their needs. Students can also narrow schools to the subjects they are interested in, such as business, criminal justice, information technology and healthcare management.
"Our goal was creating a service that would be expansive enough to assist individuals whether they are coming back to school, going to college for the first time or looking for ways to advance their career," said Zipper.
