Online education is more convenient and more affordable than ever. We wanted to help people find out what online learning options are available to them so they can take the next step in their careers.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 29, 2007
All Online Schools recently completed a major website redesign that makes it easier than ever for prospective students to get the facts about distance learning and find online colleges that are a worthwhile investment. All Online Schools features 100% accredited online undergraduate and graduate degree programs plus guidance and advice for those exploring distance learning and online degrees.
With enrollment in online courses projected to reach an all time high of 1.7 million U.S. students this year, all signs point to the fact that online education is now mainstream. Fueling this strong growth, are traditional public and private universities that invested in building high quality, unique online programs and employers who recognize the value of online degrees. But because there are hundreds of online universities and thousands of online college degree programs to choose from, finding reliable information online about those programs can be difficult.
"Unlike other sites that just list online degrees, we wanted to provide original online learning information that's easy to find and easy to understand. We know the majority of our visitors are interested in career advancement - whether they're starting a career or trying to get ahead in their current one," said Nichole Marconi, product manager of All Online Schools. "Online education is more convenient and more affordable than ever. We wanted to help people find out what online learning options are available to them so they can take the next step in their careers."
With that goal in mind, the new redesign not only focused on refreshing the overall site look-and-feel but also improved the site organization, making it easier for students to discover the content-rich resources on online learning and the wide selection of online program offerings. The home page showcases the top 10 online programs, the most popular online degrees, current hot careers like animation, timely articles on topics like how to earn life experience credits and a new "Online Degrees 101" section.
The most notable addition of the redesign, the Online Degrees 101 guide answers many of the commonly asked questions students have about online learning-from the importance of accreditation to tips for online learning success-all in one place. Students will also find a comprehensive glossary of common online education terms and a detailed comparison of the top online schools in the country.
The redesign also enhanced the Online Education Resource Center, which covers the latest news and features in online education and careers. The resource center features first-hand accounts of the benefits of online learning through in-depth interviews with current professors and students. Students can also stay current with the latest trends in online degree programs, updates on job training requirements, job growth and fast-growing careers as well as innovative ways to finance an online college education.
"No matter what stage of life people are at, All Online Schools is dedicated to helping them research online programs, connect to the right schools and take their careers to the next stage," Marconi said.
