In our previous post, I suggested that online learning is the way of the future. One of the reasons we know this is because all the major universities are scrambling to provide online classrooms.
Already sixteen universities, including Stanford, Duke, and Princeton have teamed up with the company Coursera to offer their courses online to anyone in the world.
Similarly, Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology recently formed the non-profit edX, which will offer university courses from MIT, Harvard, the University of California, Berkeley, as well as other institutions that may wish to be involved.
Professors are also excited about the almost unlimited potential of online education. An article for The Week Magazine recently reported that “Professors say it’s thrilling to reach so many students at once, from teenagers in India to baby boomers in Indiana. Coursera co-founder Andrew Ng, a Stanford computer science professor, recently taught an online class to more than 100,000 students. To reach that many people, Ng said, ‘I would have had to teach my normal Stanford class for 250 years.’”
Suffice to say, the benefits of online education are profound, as these new learning tools promise to reduce previous restrictions in geography, time and money.
However, as I suggested in my previous post, ‘Online Learning: the way of the future’, we need special skills if we are to make the most of our online learning experience. This is especially true when your EPPP Study Material is presented in an online format.
Students often neglect to give sufficient consideration to the skills needed to use the internet efficiently. And quite frankly, it’s also an area where most online universities are failing their students.
The Taylor Study Method doesn’t want to make this same mistake. We aim to not only deliver quality EPPP preparation materials to you, but to give you the study tips necessary for processing that information as efficiently as possible.
