Online education is all the rage right now. Many students are leaving a traditional college experience behind and opting to take classes online to get their degrees. And while it’s a very popular option that’s growing every day, there are still plenty of myths out there about this way of learning, partly because it is so new!
Have you ever thought that online learning can reduce one-on-one attention from teachers? Or maybe that online learning only works for self-starting students? You’re not alone. But Noodle Education is here to dispel some of the myths with some info from NPR’s KQED.
Noodle Education created the first and only life-long education search engine in the world. Noodle.org enables users to find the right school, college, tutor, instruction video, or any other education resource — and it’s free. Headquartered in New York City, Noodle was created in 2011 by a powerhouse team of education innovators from The Princeton Review, 2U, Kaplan, Kumon and Colloquy. The company has been recognized by Forbes Magazine, as “one of the 6 fastest growing tech companies” and hailed by Mashable, as “one of the 5 startups transforming online education.”
