[USPRwire, Wed Apr 28 2010] In response to growing nationwide interest in online education and distance learning, Test Drive College Online, in collaboration with TogetherWeServed.com, will host a free, comprehensive webinar designed for those interested in pursuing a degree through online education programs.
Led by retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Michael Angley, the exclusive webinar will offer students and military service members a broad look into the benefits and possibilities of online education.
"With the number of online college degree possibilities out there today, it's difficult for a student to figure out what program would be the best fit” said Macy Oosthuizen, Product Manager for Test Drive College Online. “This webinar is a fantastic opportunity to find out about online education in general as well as how to find a program that fits the particular needs of our military service members."
The webinar, Online Education…Is it Right for Me?, will take place Tuesday, May 11, from 2:00 - 3:00 PM PST. Those interested should register here: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/633567275. The webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge, although admission is limited.
During the webinar, Colonel Angley will discuss the value of online education for both active and former service members, who must face the challenge of completing a college degree while balancing the responsibilities of military service. Webinar participants will leave with a broad understanding of how online education works, the pros and cons of online learning, how to apply transfer credits, and how online programs can provide the resources and flexibility necessary to help students achieve their goals.
Test Drive College Online (TDCO) is a revolutionary new program that allows qualified students the opportunity to “test drive” an online course and, upon completion, transfer credits earned to a degree program, potentially saving them thousands of dollars in tuition. TDCO was designed specifically to help students who are seriously considering earning an associate’s or bachelor’s degree determine if online education is right for them.
