Go to Head of Class – How to use Internet for learning and fun By Alvah Parker
Several years ago when I was preparing to start my own business I decided to take an accounting class. I took course at a local college. Each week I set out for school which was in a nearby city after working a full day.
I drove during rush hour and left more than enough time to reach city because parking spaces were scarce. After working a full day I was tired and hungry (I ate when I got home after class). Fighting traffic to get to class and searching for a parking space were so exhausting that it is amazing that I passed that class!
Fast forward a few years. Now all sorts of classes are given by phone and over web. The convenience is unbelievable. No more searching for parking, worrying about weather, and thinking about an empty stomach rather than concentrating on learning.
Today I can set myself up with my computer and telephone, bring along my sandwich and soda and listen, talk, and learn. E-learning also known as distance learning is simple, cost effective, and fun! And choices are endless.
Search web and you will find e-books, e-courses, teleclasses and downloadable recorded material on all sorts of topics. I could now enroll in my accounting class at site www.KaplanUniversity.com and take course for credit. Some sites even offer degreed programs.
In my journey investigating what was available I signed up for a teleclass. A teleclass is a class given by telephone, where everyone is connected to leader of class and to other participants. The particular class I signed up for was free so only cost I incurred was a long distance charge on my phone bill. Of course there are many classes for which you pay but fee is usually low. I saw several for $19.
