Online education

We are faced with a dilemma. Online education is convenient and when is appropriately conducted can be a godsend for busy students.

The acceptance of a qualification from purely online education institutions has been mixed. This article describes some of the misconceptions of online education. However the real issue is the prolific number of diploma mills that operate solely online. The quality of education again depends on the certification of the institute, be it online or otherwise.

UK was number one many years ago. She was called the Empire of Never Setting Sun. But she learnt not to be number one and her people is going on fine. As Clinton says so powerfully, we are all on the same boat. We all live on this planet and there is no second planet that we can go to if we mess this one up.

Let me drive this home with this:
