Capella University

We're seeing some interesting changes in the world of online education these days.

The first is the way in which the faculty at the various schools is becoming more like that at the more traditional ones. For example, this adjunct faculty member at Capella University, Sara Orem PhD, has recently published Appreciative Coaching: A Positive Process for Change. This is an example of the sort of ground breaking academic research into human psychology that any orf the older colleges would be proud to be associated with.

The second is a change in the way that such online colleges are viewed by hte establishment. It used to be that only schools which had 50% of their students on campus could receive fenderally subsidized student loans. This restriction has now been lifted and all accredited schools can now use this facility.

This is a huge step forward inmaking education available to all.
