Who is the Online Student?

Self education can become more important and has found many new ways, plus a marvellous help with the modern internet facilities.

There are so many students who have gone through “the system”. The “dumbing down” got them from one school to an other and boring them more and more, they lost interest all together. They got somewhere lost and after some years wandering want to take up the thread again.

In many countries we encounter the same.

Unfortunately, schools and educators have not been immune to the lunacy sweeping the educational enterprise — suppression of competition, safeguarding students’ feelings at all costs, promoting self-esteem over academic achievement and dumbing down coursework to the level of the least-capable student. What has been lost is the insistence on excellence, an aggressive curriculum of core subjects (both religious and secular) and devotion to hard work. Some do find that there is too much emphasis on academic achievement, too aggressive a curriculum, and too much hard work.

For years, online education has been the institution of for-profit educational programs (most famously the University of Phoenix). Now, non-profit institutions are “fighting back” and becoming more invested in online education. Online Degrees has posted an interesting Infographic highlighting the evolution of online education.
