UoPeople Online Learning

UoPeople Online Learning

From the beginning of times, the customs, history, religions, behaviors, and knowledge were orally transmitted and assumed to belong to the entire population although often managed by the elites.

University of the People (UoPeople) is the Education Revolution! It is the first non-profit, American-accredited, tuition-free online university dedicated to opening access to higher education globally. As an ambassador and MBA student (see my resume here), I can not recommend it enough.

University of the People

UoPeople is Online-learning

Students perceive that online learning’s advantages include saving time, fitting in better with schedules, and taking more courses; however, it is commonly held that online-learning does not provide other advantages. Specifically, students don’t understand the value of class discussions and internal social media (O’Malley & McCraw, 1999). 

UoPeople is a new Pedagogical Approach

In the past, distance-learning and online-learning paradigms were less appreciated; today, the relevant practices and mindsets are changed both in the academic and business world: the appropriate use of technology is leading to significant improvements in learning and teaching across the sector and this is translating into improved satisfaction, retention and achievement”, (JISC, 2008). Indeed, interactivity of content and connectivity of people are the most prominent characteristics; the way and extent you employ these features add quality to the learning process giving you an edge and competitive advantage.

UoPeople is International Education

There is evidence that international education contributes to students’ intellectual and personal development. As a result, international education benefits the individuals who participate in these experiences and the nations from which they come or go (Cummings, 2001).
