Online Degrees You Can Get From Online Education - Articles Surfing

Nowadays, it is impossible to get a job without a post secondary degree. The reason being that everyone has a degree so employers view having a post secondary degree as the new bare minimum. A degree in higher education should therefore be your top priority after you graduate from highschool. Also, if you think the program of your choice doesn't have an online equivalent, think again - there are over 1,500 different types of online degrees you can choose from.

1. Associate Degrees

The lowest form of post secondary education is the associate degree. While you will be able to get a good paying job with such a degree you won't necessarily be able to advance beyond that position into a position of more authority. For example, an associate degree in nursing might get you the night shift as a nurse, but not the lead nurse or hospital coordinator. This is equivalent to a two year program.

2. Bachelor's Degrees

As an undergraduate you will complete a major that lasts three or four years in study. The most common Bachelors that are awarded are in the arts and sciences.

3. PHD Masters Degree

A doctorate is the highest level of education and places you at the same level of knowledge and competancy as an instructor. With minimal additional training you would be qualified to teach the subject to students of your own.

4. About E-Learning

E-learning is an all-encompassing term generally used to refer to computer-enhanced learning, although it is often extended to include the use of mobile technologies such as PDAs and MP3 players. It may include the use of web-based teaching materials and hypermedia in general, multimedia CD-ROMs or web sites, discussion boards, collaborative software, e-mail, blogs, wikis, computer aided assessment, educational animation, simulations, games, learning management software, electronic voting systems and more, with possibly a combination of different methods being used.

Along with the terms learning technology and Educational Technology, the term is generally used to refer to the use of technology in learning in a much broader sense than the computer-based training or Computer Aided Instruction of the 1980s. It is also broader than the terms Online Learning or Online Education which generally refer to purely web-based learning. In cases where mobile technologies are used, the term M-learning has become more common.
