Thoughts About Learning

I was talking with a friend of mine whose child is now in college and she said that one of the things she did that really made a difference in her child's education and college choice was listening to books on tape. Instead of listening to the radio whenever they were in the car, she was listening to classic books like Wuthering Heights, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies and Shakespeare. She did this and she said it helped alot with her childs comprehension and vocabulary. I thought that was a great idea. I went to my local library on yesterday and checked out Animal Farm and Pompeii, The History of the Roman Empire for dirty Fila. Can we say she was not pleased.

We had a long talk about why I was doing this and how it could help her future and that she needed to look to the future for high school and college. She reluctantly finally did listen to what I had to say. It is only to help her. I also explained that no matter how old you are, learning never stops. It does not stop when school is out during the summer or after you complete college. Learning continues forever. I explained to her that I might be going back to graduate school and that I might do that the e-learning way. Nowadays with the age of technology people can get graduate and undergraduate degrees in the conveniece of their own homes via computer. Capella University is one establishment that provides that for its students.

With e-learning you can access your classes and tests at any time. You also can participate in class discussions and interact with the professor as needed. Grades and homework are posted online. It is so easy it is almost like using an email system. Using the computer to study is interactive with a good deal of your course work being done offline. Capella is an accredited university with some of the best teachers in their field of academics. There are also enrollment counselors that will help with your course selection to be sure that you reach your educational as well as professsional goals.

Enrollment is open now, so consider enrolling. It is never too late to get an education or furthur the one you already have. Capella has eight new graduate and undergraduate programs in information technology, education, criminal justice, psychology and business. They also have a new program in public safety making them among the first on-line schools to offer that to their students. Capella is an institution that is committed to providing high-caliber academic excellence !
