Although a large proportion of for-profit higher education institutions now offer online classes, only about half of private, non-profit schools do so. Private institutions may become more involved with on-line presentations as the costs decrease. Properly trained staff must also be hired to work with students online. These staff members need to understand the content area, and also be highly trained in the use of the computer and Internet. Online education is rapidly increasing, and online doctoral programs have even developed at leading research universities.
Not all courses start on the same date. Course start and end dates vary based on the semester Term. Classes should show in eLearning after 8am Central Time on the start date provided.

If you are using groups in your course, and a student gets dropped from the course by the Registrar, they are also dropped from their group. However, when the student is re-enrolled in the course, they are not automatically reinstated into their course group(s). The instructor must re-add the student to his/her group again.
The subject line of the email that is sent to the students will include that verbiage. For example, if you want to email students who made less than 60 on Exam 1, the subject line is “Scored less than 60 on Exam 1.” Students may be uncomfortable with receiving an email with that subject line.

Abstract: The capability of organizations to accumulate and apply new knowledge is a key factor in order to achieve the new competitive standards. A continuous changing diversity, to which the need of adaptation to the changes of external environment is added, speeds up the rate of development and business education. The new information and communication technologies speed up the rate of change and increase the need of education that is subject to a higher information flow. The achievements of information technology, along with changes within society, determine the creation of new paradigms for business education and training. Under these circumstances, e-learning has become one of the main educational forms of human resources in business. This research aims to measure the impact of some initiatives within human resources on an organization, market leader within pharmaceutical field, namely measuring the efficiency of business education programs concerning human resources through e-learning. Under these circumstances, the carried-out research aims to put into practice the theoretical frame of ROI (Return on Investment) methodology of evaluating the business education programs concerning human resources in five stages, suggested by J. J. Phillips. The research validates theoretical data of the surveyed model and it is based on the analysis of the data gathering process within the ROI Methodology. This work shows only aspects related to the measuring of the participants` reaction towards the e-learning business education program, respectively.

The design of e-learning platforms in ways that enable universal access has received attention from several directions, including the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). WAI provides universal formatting standards for websites so they can remain accessible to people with disabilities. For example, developing or adopting e-learning material can enable accessibility for people with visual impairment. The Perkins School for the Blind offers learning resources tailored for the visually impaired, including webcasts, webinars, downloadable science activities, and an online library that has access to over 40,000 resource materials on blindness and deaf blindness.

According to Lai, “the learning environment is a complex system where the interplay and interactions of many things impact the outcome of learning.” When technology is brought into an educational setting, the pedagogical setting changes in that technology-driven teaching can change the entire meaning of an activity without adequate research validation. If technology monopolizes an activity, students can begin to develop the sense that “life would scarcely be thinkable without technology.”

There is an assumption that technology is inherently interesting so it must be helpful in education; based on research by Daniel Willingham, that is not always the case. He argues that it does not necessarily matter what the technological medium is, but whether or not the content is engaging and utilizes the medium in a beneficial way.
Education is expensive. That’s why PSC provides Alabama residents, meeting the criteria of physical residence and the establishment of two legal ties to the State of Alabama, a fee that is equivalent to the in-state tuition plus an additional $10.00 per credit hour or credit hour equivalent. To be eligible for the Alabama Tuition Differential, the Alabama resident must have maintained legal residence in the State of Alabama for the twelve months immediately preceding the first day of classes in the term for which the differential tuition assessment is requested. PSC offers a number of programs fully online, and prospective students interested in the assessment of the Alabama Tuition Differential may submit the request for classification as an Alabama Resident in a registration office on any campus.
