The Ultimate Combination of Education and Technology – The Distance MBA Degree

The Ultimate Combination of Education and Technology – The Distance MBA Degree

Due to the incessant and ever-increasing demand of many companies and corporations for the most talented and skilled people to hold their tops posts, the need for a comprehensive and detailed system of training these select individuals has risen over the years. And the best way to get a scientific based approach to management is through the perfect balance of theory and practice that is offered by an MBA degree. Very few other programs, if any, offer better training in all the aspects and nuances of management and running every aspect of a business like the MBA program. So it’s not surprising that more and more people are turning to it to enrich their knowledge and to significantly bolster their resumes.

It’s a very common fact that those who have received the benefit of an MBA degree are usually entrusted with higher posts, greater responsibilities, and higher pay than those who attempt to climb the corporate ladder without them. But it’s also true that there are several people who are not able due to time, schedule or distance to enroll themselves in traditional MBA classes. Many of these classes would require students to attend classes like regular university students or to attend night classes. And for those who live far away from institutions of learning or are engaged with their jobs or families far too much too much to have time or energy to spare, this poses serious problems. Many just have to accept the fact that a regular MBA degree is not for them. But should this stop gifted individuals from learning advanced management skills? Of course not!

The perfect solution for this problem would be the distance MBA degree. Distance education, as its name implies, is perfect for educating students that are not physically ‘on-site’. And because of significant advances in technology, such as the Internet and all the powers of communication that come with it (such as web chat, e-mails, online modules etc.) students are assured that they get their lectures in real time and that their reading materials are received complete and with as little delay as possible.

There are many forms to this kind of education. These include: correspondence courses through snail or e-mail, non-interactive broadcast video, pre-recorded video, live teleconference or videoconference, and online/offline computer courses. With the variety of options, students can pick the one that is most convenient for their needs.…

Distance Education is Now Training the Next Genertation of Medical Assistants

Distance Education is Now Training the Next Genertation of Medical Assistants

Some people are calling it distance-free learning for the Medical Assistant. Distance Learning happens where the learner is most available, free from the traditional boundaries of geography. It could be in the next room, or in the next state. It uses whatever technology is most available and appropriate to allow effective learning wherever needed.
It changes the rules. Now, you and your colleagues, the learners, are more able to adapt and use your newly-gained knowledge for your real world challenges immediately. Laboratory work is done at your own location.

Typical Methods of Distance Learning for Medical Assistant programs and other schools include:

One-way video / two-way audio via satellite

Two way video and audio conferencing

Multiple user audio-only conferencing

World Wide Web-based access to educational programs

Internet and e-mail-based distributed educational programs

Online labs using innovative distance education technology (excellent for the Medical Assistant student)

A critical element of effective distance learning today is the learning environment. Interaction within that environment can occur by many technical means: e-mail, fax, telephone, two-way video. Interestingly, this interaction is becoming more asynchronous Qmeaning it does not have to happen at the same time for all participants.

Medical Assistant distance edcuation is quickly becoming the norma and not the acceptance for the future generation of new Medical Assistants. The Medical Assistant that can integrate technology with their profession and on-going education is at a GREAT ADVANTAGE to the students studying in older classroom modules and settings. The next generation of Medical Assistants will be educated by distance education technology and will replace the older traditional classroom trained medical assistants. Detailed information about Medical Assistant distance education is now available at the St. Louis Augustine Medical Assistant website: www.medassistant.org …

Financial Education 101 – For Sovereign Wealth and Emergency Financial Preparedness

Financial Education 101 – For Sovereign Wealth and Emergency Financial Preparedness

It is similar. As a culture and a society we have not been very well financially educated. At times it is important to cut through all the confusion and get down to the basics of financial knowledge and financial security to help lead us into sovereign wealth. Do you know the old saying, "a dollar just does not buy what it used to", well, keep that in mind as you read this article.

The question was posed to me, "How does the value of a dollar relate to a declining economy?" And the simple answer to that is, "what can it by you?" It's all about PURCHASING POWER. Think commodities, the simple things that make your life easier. The oil that makes the gas that drives your car. The food ingredients to the meals that fuel your body. The materials used to dress you and your family.

Now if you have ever held stocks, more definitively, a stock which has split, you get double the amount of shares, although each share only has half of its buying power. For instance, if you have 100 shares at $ 100 dollars, and it splits, well then suddenly you have 200 shares at $ 50. It's the same with the value of the dollar or any other fiat currency.

There are essentially 2 reasons why the value of a fiat currency (aka the dollar) will lose its value.

  1. The amount of dollars increases in circulation (ex- the federal reserve printing money out of thin area often to cover outstanding debts to other countries – think China)
  2. A decreasing demand for that said fiat currency (ex- the United States dollar, when steeped in so much debt, other countries or loaner's lose faith on ever being paid back, will stop buying into it – think China)

So now, say that the same example happened with the dollar as did the stock in our above example of a stock split. Either supply doubles or demand gets cut in half, and the value of our dollar is cut in half. Now when you want to go out and fuel your car, feed your family, or cloth yourself … you dollar will only buy half as much as before, so "a dollar just does not buy what it used to." This is an important basic of knowledge to keep in mind when planning for your financial security, especially when speaking of growing sovereign wealth and planning for emergency financial security. …
