Not long ago, the concept of distance education
was dependant upon evolution of communication technology. Now that this
technology is a reality, new opportunities for global students have arrived.
The availability of quality online education in
the form of courses, test-outs, portfolio assessment, and research-based
learning has nearly eliminated the need for expensive school buildings,
huge faculties and administration, resulting in tremendous benefits including
lowered tuition, non-interruption of present career, convenience of scheduling,
elimination of travel and student housing expense and a wider availability of
the best educators.
Distance methods help to remove social
inequalities, and provide salvation for the educationally disadvantaged. The
flexibility of globalized education, open access and adaptability provides a
cost-effective opportunity to study anything, anywhere at any time, with only
the requirement of having access to a computer and the Internet.

richer learning experience for the mature student. It also affords a personal
dimension to tuition that is no longer possible on today's campuses. The

The History and The Future
history, more learning and teaching has taken place outside a classroom than
in what we think of today as the traditional setting.
"Nontraditional" educational programs have always been slow to be accepted by
old style, "traditional" educators with vested interest in traditional higher
education. It has been found that there is less and less resistance to new
ideas techniques and educational programs such as our fully accredited degree
programs since we entered the Information Age.
This is likely due to the rapid
acceptance by employers, organizations and modern-thinking educators, and
growing acceptance by even the most stringent "traditionalists".
In the next
century the world population will reach 10 billion. The challenge of providing
education to such a doubled population is formidable for the development of
education. For nations, even now, the level of the education of its people is
rapidly becoming as important for its prosperity as its natural resources.
Francis Bacon said 400 years ago that “knowledge is power”, but that has never
been truer than it is today.
of the future student is greatly different from what traditional education has
provided. This has arisen because it is no longer sufficient that all citizens
get a sound, basic education before taking up an occupation. In the course of a
normal working career, individuals will need to update and renew their knowledge
and skills several times. Learning has now become lifelong - not as a choice but
as a necessity.
Holding a college
degree can dramatically enhance your chances of a prosperous future
and lead to exciting careers.
St. Regis University will continue to be a leader in the future of education.
