One positive result of the Internet revolution is the ease of learning “online.” I’m not even talking about earning a college degree online. Club Ed makes it easy to take that special interest class you’ve been meaning to sign up for, or getting that certificate to help in your job search, or even preparing to take a GED or SAT test.
Hear are some reasons to look at online learning:
Most online learners are 30 and older. They have jobs, families, and lots of commitments that make going to class difficult, if not impossible. By learning online, they can choose the times that fit their schedules.
Say you have a quality learning center nearby. They may not offer all the subjects you need, or if they do, they may not fit your schedule. Online learning does.
Matter of Degrees
Not all online learners are seeking college degrees. Certification may be a quicker way to turn your learning into earning. According to one expert, “If you can stack up certificates next to your name, it is very helpful.”
In today’s economy, many people are looking to change careers or even add a second job. With online learning, the options are limitless. As a bonus, you can keep your current job while preparing for that second career.
A Department of Education study found that students taking online courses performed better than those in face-to-face classes. That may be due to the fact that online students are generally more motivated, more independent, and more willing to ask for help.
