Online courses offer knowledge and convenience
Raleigh, NC - August 4, 2009 /PRAvenueNW/ -- Today, the economy is going though enormous transitions and everyone needs to be prepared for the changes occurring since it matters not if you are employed, unemployed, in school or retired. It was Charles Darwin who said it best, “It’s not the strongest of the species who survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.” Learning online has proven to be one of the most powerful changes in education to date and Wake Public School Lifelong Learning program instructor Detra Denay Davis has take the online learning opportunity one step further by making her ever popular business course for baking enthusiasts How to Operate a Home-Based Bakery: Micro Course available online.
With a Masters in Distance Education from the University of Maryland University College, Denay insist, “There is little doubt distance education is quickly becoming one of the most convenient methods for not only distributing information but keeping learners abreast of new trends, services and resources.” The distance learning trend means adult learners no longer have to commute to classes after work, they can now live anywhere in the United States and have access to course material outside their community, learning is self-paced and students have access to the course material 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Of course distance learning is not without its challenges; students may need to use a computer; become familiar with certain technology and practice a bit more time management. The feedback from online classes is not immediate like traditional classroom settings; but if learners can get past "changing" the way they think about learning and cast those technophobic fears away there is little doubt it can be a most rewarding experience.
