Online Courses Cater to Adult Learners

Constant changes in the workplace and an aging population have created major new opportunities in adult education. This new market is already significantly larger than the for-credit higher education market, and demand for adult education and training will continue to outpace supply for some time.

The ed2go network consists of more than 2,100 top colleges, universities, and other organizations. They offer hundreds of engaging non-credit online courses, covering every topic from Accounting to Web Design. Each course consists of a patient and caring instructor, lively discussions, knowledge checks and plenty of practical information that you can put to immediate use.

All ed2go courses are entirely online, which can be taken from the comfort of your home or office at the times that are most convenient to you. Courses begin monthly and run for six weeks; each week composed of two lessons for a total of 12 lessons. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to download a certificate of completion.

Ed2go courses are affordable, fun, convenient and geared towards your interests. It may be as basic as Discover Digital Photography or as complex as Intermediate QuickBooks 2013, but there is one absolute: ed2go can get you there! We suggest you view a demo to determine whether ed2go is right for you.

To register for a class, go to www.ed2go.com/ucaoce, search for the course you’d like to take and hit Enroll Now. Please contact Lawana Hawkins at (501) 450-5811 with questions.
