Learning Outside the Classroom
Besides signing up herself, Melody Chapman is trying to bring access to learning to more people.
Chapman knows one reason people don't get to attend class is because there is sometimes not enough interest to start one.
"With ED2 go as our supplier they can have people from California, New Mexico, just anywhere in the United States, or anywhere where they offer these classes to comprise the class," said Lifelong Learning Director, Melody Chapman.
State Fair Community College started offering about 300 online courses in January, and launched additional business classes this April.
"If you have a web browser, such as internet explorer, an email account, you can take an ED2 go class, it's that easy."
And most say it takes the pressure off sitting in an actual class.
"I was able to be very comfortable while i was going through my courses, I actually kept my pajamas on the whole time," said real estate agent Cherie Whitlow.
The college hopes these courses will help small businesses in Sedalia save on employee training, but it's too early to tell if the idea will fly."
"I think some people have a more secure feeling seeing a teacher in front of them and learning from their lecturing," said Whitlow.
While other appreciate learning at their own time.
Most courses begins at $79 and last 6 weeks.
