EDUCATORS - Worried about your students?

How to Ace Your Online Course is much more than a study guide. First, we take readers behind the scenes in online education. This benefits not only students but administrators and instructors because we describe how students need to adjust psychologically to the general theory of education operative in the online world. Without this crucial psychological adjustment students will not succeed and will not finish college. Second, we provide detailed strategies and instructions for students, based on our many years of experience teaching at for-profit, public, and private colleges and universities.

CORPORATIONS - Concerned about workforce training?

The total number of post-secondary students enrolled in at least one online course has continued to increase and is expected (according to our estimation) to exceed 12 million, or approximately 50% of the entire post-secondary student population, by 2020. At the same time, corporations are investing heavily in workforce retraining, especially through supporting graduate degrees, many of which are earned online by employees getting tax-free support.

The graph below shows there were approximately four million online students in 2007. This number has already doubled and is expected to triple by 2020.

In 1996, approximately 12% of graduate students in the U.S. received financial support from their employers. By 2008, over 20% were receiving support. The amount of support has also increased rapidly over the same time frame. Under U.S. tax law, employers are allowed to give up to $5,500 each year in TAX FREE INCOME to employees enrolled in graduate degree programs. Since 1996 the average employer contribution has increased from just over $3000 to over $4500 in 2008 -- a 50% increase.
