Everyone is familiar with undergraduate, master’s, and doctorate degrees and the amount of time it takes to achieve them. But have you heard of microdegrees or nanodegrees?

Nanodegrees and microdegrees concentrate on a narrow range of knowledge or skills that can be accomplished in a short amount of time. In today’s fast-paced society, these degrees can be a great option to consider.

Education has been my vocation and passion for most of my life. So as a baby boomer, I can tell you that many of us are not just resting as we get to retirement age. Some of us are still actively engaged in our jobs, some in volunteer work, while still others are busy mentoring the next generation. The point? Lifelong learning is real and doable. 

 

Did you know Ohio has the largest single state collaborative of eTutoring across the continent? That’s because there is a great deal of support for a program that began as a grass roots collaborative effort and has blossomed across the state.

Understanding how a collaborative offers a cost-efficient and effective model for an eTutoring program was the focal point of a presentation eStudent Services delivered at the recent Association of Colleges for Tutoring and Learning (ACTLA) Conference. The presentation was titled, “Chronicles of Ohio’s eTutoring Collaborative and Steps to Start Your State’s Collective.”  

We all know it’s not always the case that an event, a movie, even a meal lives up to the preceding hype. The Ohio Educational Technology Conference (OETC)(link sends e-mail) is one of the rare exceptions. According to its website, OETC is “the premier P-20 state educational technology conference,” and guess what? It actually is.
