Distance learning programs were available long before Internet was born. I remember a friend of mine, taking marketing courses by correspondence: she got the materials by snail mail, she did her homeworks, sent them to that university, and finally got a diploma. It was not the diploma, but the acquired knowledge, which led her to a better job and a career shift towards the marketing area, which she enjoyed a lot, but she had no formal education in.
Since early internet days, more and more universities started to open their eyes and ears to their public needs, and launched online learning programs which are available for a lot of busy people who like to learn or need to get skills in certain domains, such as:
- Art and Design
- Law and criminal justice
- Motor sports and aviation
As I wish to take some psychology classes, I started to look into available offers, and once more I felt like my country was too small to get noticed. Why do I say that?
Well, maybe you all know Monster.com, the human resources portal, which already opened branches for a lot of countries worldwide. What you may not know, is that for USA residents, they have an online degrees search portal which can help you discover training opportunities:

The portal is free and very easy to use, and it does not require any registration. In case you like one of the training programs, you can ask for details by filling in a simple form. I just found some Culinary Courses. Who knows, maybe they’ll accept Europeans, case in which, you can expect a whole “cooking experiences” category on this blog.
