I am able to drive my children to and from school, I am able to be at home when they are sick, and I am able to wake up with them and read to them before bed without having to worry about making time for a classroom. Additionally, I am able to do all coursework at my own convenience. online classes enabled me to “attend” class when it was convenient for me. This allowed me to dedicate the time and attention my program demanded of me, but didn’t force me to put the rest of my life on hold. It’s the only way I can imagine earning my degree at this stage in my life. the greatest benefit of distance learning education can simply be summarized in two words, flexibility and convenience! The nonconventional learning capability allowed me to pursue my “dream” degree while at the same time continue homeschooling my daughter as well as participate in several NASA internship opportunities. Question 2: What is one recommendation you would give to a potential student looking into distance learning programs Research the reputation of the university offering the program, as well as read reviews about professors, finance centers, registrar offices, and technical support staff associated with the university. The prospective student needs to make sure they are going to feel comfortable with each and every service and/or aspect offered. earning a degree can be an overwhelming thought, especially if you’re already working full-time. Online learning offers an extremely flexible format for learning and getting homework done. I found that the faculty and staff at Bellevue University were really dedicated to my success. online education is the ingenious method which permits students to combine working on attaining a degree while at the same time maintaining their everyday demands of life such as being a stay at home parent or developing a successful career. It is truly the best of both worlds.

Academic Dean, American College of Education Wayne d. Smutz, ph.d. Executive Director, Penn State university World Campus Question 1: How can we leverage online learning programs to increase the nation’s education level online learning allows the learner to customize their schedules and experiences. Trends show learning programs are increasingly adapting to the learner’s schedule. Online learning provides ultimate flexibility, thus allowing education to reach the hands of more of our nation’s population. adult learners are eager to move forward in education but barriers persist – especially cost, restraints on time, and family responsibilities. We have seen in the past decade that online education can tear down those barriers because of its interactive nature, flexibility, lack of reliance on bricks-and-mortar infrastructure and ability to leverage advanced and efficient technology systems. online programs provide the convenience and flexibility that those who are working need. But, access is not enough. Increasing the nation’s education level requires ensuring that students complete their degrees. Finally, we need to find ways to use technology to reduce the cost of higher education and deliver personalized learning. Question 2: What is the greatest stigma around online degrees, and how can we combat it as more research is conducted, it will be widely accepted that online learning is an equally effective delivery method to traditional classrooms. A quality online degree is dependent on quality content, effective delivery and secure assessment methods. It is our job as education technology companies to provide our clients with simple, quality products. the scrutiny around quality in online education probably reflects the assumption that face-to-face learning is superior; however, recent studies indicate that online education is on par with or even superior to faceto-face education. Online institutions must deliver sound, student-centric curricula from extraordinary faculty to eager, active learners. the issue of “quality.” Faculty who teach online need to talk more about its potential. Employers who hire graduates of online programs need to talk about their experiences with such graduates. And, the more that traditional colleges start putting courses online, the more online learning will not be branded low quality.
