Online Education From Satellite Locations

By Matt Norman

Online education courses are generally assumed to be those courses
completed from your home, but you can also find some online
education opportunities from satellite locations. There are some
obvious benefits to taking online or distance learning classes from a
satellite location, but first you may wonder why anyone would take this
route in searching for educational advancement.

Geographic location is arguably the most common reason for seeking
out online education courses from a satellite location. Even if you live in
a college town, you may want to take classes that are not offered
locally. If you don't have even a community college nearby, you may
find yourself faced with three equally unappealing options - drop the
idea of taking the classes, traveling several hours each time the class
meets, or moving. Online education from satellite locations eliminates
the need for you to make any of those choices.

Online education in the form of distance learning has become a popular
option for public and private schools that have trouble recruiting
teachers for specific subjects. In order to offer some classes, these
schools become satellite locations. They associate themselves with
another school that does offer the class and the students at the satellite
location have the opportunity to take the class along with students at
the main location. Two way communication, including video feed,
allow students in both classes to interact with the teacher and with
each other. Sometimes, additional satellite locations meet at the same
time and it's not unusual for three or four classes to share time and

The advantage is that students get to interact, ask questions and hear
discussion in real time, but aren't required to be physically present at
the main classroom. That concept is being offered in locations around
the world for a myriad of courses. To find classes available at a
satellite location near you, check with local schools, colleges or
universities, or your local library. You may be amazed to discover
what's offered in the way of online education at satellite locations right
in your home town, right around the corner, or even right on your
personal computer screen.
