Online University Brings New Opportunities to Asian Students

Fuvahmulak is an isolated island in the Maldives, a group of islands in the Indian Ocean. One of the residents of Fuvahmulak, Abdulla Rasheed Ahmed, wanted to further his education by earning his doctoral degree in education, but since Fuvahmulak is so isolated, the closest university to his home was an hour’s flight away, and this university does not even offer the degree that Ahmed was seeking.

Recently, students physically attending public school have been introduced to the online method. Many school districts, including Memphis City Schools, require their students to take at least one online course.

More Students are Attending Classes Online

computerWhat does the typical high school classroom look like to you? It maybe has some desks, some students, and a teacher, right? At least, that’s  how the typical classroom looked a few decades ago.

According to the Sloan Consortium, more than one million students attended classes via the Internet in 2008. Of those million, around 200,000 were enrolled in full-time virtual schools, meaning they attend all of their classes online.

“If students have their own computer, it can travel with them from home to school,” Karen Cator, director of the office of education technology at the U.S. Department of Education. “There can be software programs that help the student, or there can be an online teacher, but the technology can also augment a teacher in a face-to-face classroom.” Read the rest of this entry »
