Why (Digital) Education is the new eCommerce

Manish Reddy

Education Technology has never got the attention it got this year. We saw some truly revolutionary developments and Tech Blogs have been full with news and announcement on EdTech. The fact that there is a public debate about the maturation of digital learning and even a potential bubble is a fair sign that real change is afoot. While looking at a recently published report on trends in eCommerce by Cisco triggered a valuable question, can digital education ever be as big as eCommerce?

    Actually if you follow trends... Digital Education was a get-rich scheme inspired by the child-brain at Apollo. The founders of Phoenix online... They found Westwood College and thought to make a DUPLICATE application to it. An now they got over 20+ schools from Kapalan, Kaplan, and WGUs` . Apollo(the partner or partial owner of Good) has made it hard for people to get a REAL digital education online. States are actively kicking their schools out and most online colleges because of them.
    Apollo has been Audited numerous of times because... They liked to KEEP people enrolled, when they attempted to withdrawn from the school. They were accepting Federal money as people had quit that school. The people were just forgetting to turn off their Grant money and APOLLO was taking full advantage of that.

    Now there is about a very few legit online college that will not set people up to only take federal money(Westwood college is one of them - - As Westwood college was the first online college) . But sadly Westwood college can not be attended in many states, because Apollo(owner of University of Phoenix) has ruined it by stealing federal money. Not many states no longer accept or will fund a individual wanting a online degree, because of Apollo. However some state schools do have online courses.

    If you are looking for online college... Check your *local colleges* for online courses. Just so you could still benefit with the School-at-any-hour. Its safer anyway... You could be having a teacher who is also a student, that is trying to get you to do their homework at a school ran by Apollo. You could go see who is actually teaching the online course instead of one person pretending to be many or automated responders.

    Funny numerous times people have attempted to see which of the few teach at Apollo... Each time Apollo finds some way to evade it.
