There’s a week for everything these days and Distance Learning is no exception. November 10th – 14th is National Learning Week… or 4 days.
There was a time that studying for a degree online had a certain stigma. Online education wasn’t considered or considered real.
Online educational facilities have really come into their own though. No more are courses only partially based online and partly in a brick and mortar facility (kind of taking away from the whole online thing).
It’s possible now to take your course completely online without even seeing a brick and mortar facility.
The stigma has all but gone too. Online degrees have more credence now than they did 5 years ago. Apparently 85% of employers now give degrees earned online as much more conventional than they were in years past.
There’s even a virtual homecoming!
Actually, you’ll find it’s the established, old-school, brick and mortar facilities that are really pushing online education. They’re realizing that times are changing and people have more of a need to study in their pajamas than in a classroom.
Take a look! give it a try!
