It’s entirely possible that you breezed through this entire week without realizing that it’s officially National Distance Learning Week (NLDW). Exciting, right? But it’s not too late to celebrate…by getting ahead on your continuing professional education.
A little background info: the United States Distance Learning Association declared Nov. 7-11 National Distance Learning Week, to celebrate the explosion in popularity of online learning in the U.S.
This past year saw unprecedented growth in online and distance learning with the rapid expansion of MOOCs, or “massive open online courses,” offered by many prestigious universities. A nonprofit educational start-up called edX (created by Harvard and MIT) kicked off its initial courses with more than 370,000 students. And Coursera, founded just last year, is closing in on the two million mark.
With tuition costs soaring, millions of Americans see distance education as a great way to augment their skills, often focusing more on learning and less on acquiring degrees. And for continuing education for mid-career pros like fraud investigators, PIs, and flight instructors, distance learning allows professional people to save on travel costs while working educational hours more conveniently into a normal workweek.
PIeducation.com celebrates distance learning this week—and all year long—by offering up-to-date, quality courses to professional investigators. This week, and every week, PIeducation offers a free ethics course with the purchase of any course priced $119.95 or more.
Our classes aren’t just hoops to jump through to re-up your hours and get your certificate. You’ll learn something, and you”ll also find yourself at turns entertained and enlightened (we hope). And if you have a problem, there’s always someone at the ready by phone or email to answer your questions.
Enlightening, entertaining, and engaging—that’s our motto.
