The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly changed our lives dramatically. Health and safety protocols that were taken for granted in the past have now become a way of life for many. Then there is the education sector, which now sees a rise in the number of education institutions offering online learning classes.
One example of this is Middlebury Institute, which now offers a Masters of Arts (MA) Online Program in International Education Management. This course goes side by side with the current in-person course on campus.
International students can either take the course full or part time, depending on their needs and schedule. Moreover, it offers the same Fall and Spring semesters, as well as January and Summer terms and opportunities. Plus, students get the same credits that they would if they chose to study on campus.
Students can still choose to study on campus and alternate this with online learning in a hybrid learning format. This gives them greater flexibility while still being able to complete their education and advance their career.
The rise in online learning, experts say, has its advantages. One distinct advantage is that it reaches a wider audience. Now, even professionals who wish to enrich their portfolio and skill set can take online learning courses from anywhere in the world.
Then there is the aspect of pending the classroom’s reach. What was previously confined to four walls has now become more farreaching and allows more people to become involved in the learning process. It takes the research and theoretical aspect and combines this with the practical learning part, resulting in a richer educational experience.
Aside from professionals, online learning programs also target those students who are still not able to travel to their chosen destination country due to border or health restrictions.
As with other education institutions, the Middlebury MA online program is just one among many such courses. Middlebury Institute, for instance, has also been offering MA online programs in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, as well as MA in Translation and Localization Management.
