Broadband Enables Transformative Online Education

  • Open Courseware
Of the many applications made possible by broadband connections, distance learning is perhaps the most transformative. Students, self-learners, educators and professionals benefit from over 9,000 free online courses now being offered by over 250 universities, according to Online College Courses, a resource that aggregates online course offerings from different universities. This level of educational access has the potential to break down barriers of educational costs, remote locations, and busy people whose lives that can't stop to obtain a higher education outside the home. It can also help disadvantaged or struggling students catch up on prerequisites. Supportive resources to promote student success include guides for students with disabilities, homework preparation, test taking and other challenges.
