A new video from The Distance Education Accrediting Commission offers an overview of the benefits of distance education.
The video describes how the quality and accessibility of distance education are quickly and significantly improving as both learners and educators become more adept at technology. The video also provides the perspectives of distance education students from DEAC-accredited institutions on how engaging in distance education supported their education goals while they worked to balance career and family responsibilities.
“Our collaborative aim was to emphasize the importance of accreditation when considering distance education and to provide informative and reliable resources to students,” said Dr. Leah Matthews, DEAC Executive Director. “Producing this video segment aligns with DEAC’s commitment to serving the greater social good through setting standards for distance education that ensure excellence in teaching, learning, and student outcomes.”
The video airs on the Fox Business Network May 14-15, 2015, and is also being distributed to Public Television affiliates nationwide the week of May 25, 2015 for multiple airings around the country.
The Distance Education Accrediting Commission, formerly the Distance Education and Training Council, is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1926 that operates as a national accreditor of distance education institutions. DEAC’s goal is to ensure a high standard of educational quality in the distance education institutions it accredits and a quality education for the more than two million students who annually study at its accredited institutions.
