Ed4Career is proud to announce our series of "In Your Opinion" polls; where your opinion counts and your voice can be heard.
We will be posting an occassional poll on our social media sites and would love to gather feedback from everyone who is interested. This week's question is, "In your opinion, can online learning be as effective as classroom learning?". Please follow the link below to cast your vote and share your opinions:
I’ve always thought of myself as fairly competent in the time management department.
However, ever since entering the social media forum, I’ve realized more and more how easily too many tasks can distract me. For example, while writing this post I’ve a) checked the company's Facebook account b) Re-tweeted two relevant articles c) straightened my desk…well, you get the picture. There are distractions everywhere!
We’ve already discussed how online courses can give students the flexibility to take their class anytime, anywhere. While it’s great that an online course can be worked around a full time job, kids and their activities, and so forth - without a set schedule or face time with instructors, the trick is staying on top of those courses. An online student is left to set their own schedule.
As students, we all have our own type of learning style. Our learning style defines how we take in, understand and process information as well as impacts our ability to problem-solve. Most of us have more than one learning style, but there is often one dominant method that we relate to more than the others – a personal combination that is uniquely ours. It’s important to note that no one learning style is superior to the others. In fact, we should always work at developing our less dominant styles to help us adapt to all types of instruction. Understanding your own personal learning style will help you determine the most optimal way for you to study and take in new information.
There are three primary learning styles:
“The means to gain happiness is to throw out from oneself like a spider in all directions an adhesive web of love, and to catch in it all that comes.” Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
In today’s busy world, many people are finding it difficult to go back to school to take courses for career advancement, career changes, or simply to learn something new. Taking courses online has proven to be an excellent option, making it easier than ever for students to obtain the education they desire.
Online courses offer both convenience and flexibility, making eLearning a great way to meld your busy lifestyle with your educational goals. You are not bound by either time or physical location – you make the choice as to when and where you study and participate. In essence, online learning offers you education at your fingertips anywhere, anytime! Our courses have been developed for use by individuals, colleges and corporations and we are always growing our catalog of offerings.
Top Ten Benefits of an Online Education
Welcome to Ed4Career!
We believe in the power of education and specifically online education to challenge us and help us grow. We both have PhDs in counseling psychology and understand the need for lifelong learning. We see the best in people and hope that they will always want to grow in both wisdom and knowledge.
We started our journeys in private practice as psychotherapists but quickly realized the need for ongoing education to improve one’s chances for a happy, healthy, and successful future. We both entered the education industry as a way to support our desire to assist people in their growth and to attain their goals in life. Since the early 1980s, before online education was available, we taught in secondary education, at the college level, and in corporations leading people to a better understanding of themselves and the world around them.
