College at your fingertips

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of technology and online learning. My children go to school online and I love it. However, what of higher education? Is online credible, worthwhile? Is it for you?

It can be quite confusing to decide which college to choose for online schooling. There are of course some names that stand out like University of Phoenix which in my humble opinion as an educator is quite robust, with sound programs and highly qualified lecturers. What of others?

I mean do you just pick the ones that show up on the first page of your Google search. Investing in education should not be taken lightly and so I have found a fabulous site to help you sort through those search results.

I like this site quite a bit OS short for Online Schools. Here is the link.

There are a few things I appreciate about this site.

  • The fact you can refine your search in a number of ways – like state, degree program, degree level and whether or not the college requires a standardized test like the GMAT or SAT.

  • I also appreciate how when you scroll down – and do scroll down (much of the valuable stuff is at the bottom of the page), that it has a fun guide so you can determine if online school is even a right fit for your personality and lifestyle. Here is the e-book link

  • I also am impressed that they have not excluded certificates and diplomas, online training programs and technology certifications

It is definitely worth a look. I will put a link to the online school finder on the College Bound Page of this site.  You can also take advantage of our College Matching service.Don’t forget to share the post and follow my blog.

Scholarships

 

You know by now that I love learning, and one of my passions is determining how more persons can access education which is why I have made my own online courses in Management, Information Technology and Math at an all time low price.

I am always encouraging my own students to move on to universities and colleges and encouraging them to apply for scholarships. There are a number of scholarship sites out there on the World Wide Web but the one I do really love is scholarship-positions.com. Why?

Well it has scholarship availability based on a number of search criteria, such as country you wish to study in, subject you wish to study. What I like most is that the site features scholarships specifically seeking international students and those scholarships that are for citizens of developing nations. This is fantastic as these two groups are often not considered by other scholarship sites. So I endorse the site. Visit it find a scholarship, apply and pack your bags.

If you still want some assistance sorting through the scores of scholarships available try our college matching service.
