    Barry Lenson

    The Euro Disney Approach to Education After years of trying, it looks like Disneyland Paris, the French version of a Disney theme park, has finally gotten stabilized and is attracting visitors.  The question is, how long will it take for foreign versions of American universities to put down roots and become part of the landscape in the countries where they are located? Here are some U.S. universities that have branches abroad . . . New York University has opened a large second campus in Abu Dhabi and is reportedly planning something similar in China. Duke University is operating a medical school in Singapore. Northwestern University is soon to open a campus in Qatar. It all makes sense – at least on an operational level. I ...

    Do You Want to Go to College in America?

They also predicted that thanks to online education, it would be possible to attend college internationally, from just about anywhere you want. If you live in France and want to earn a degree from an American college, for example, you could do that.

  • Why Online Learning Welcomes Everyone

    Barry Lenson

    Why Online Learning Welcomes Everyone Prestigious colleges are famous for rejecting more than 90 percent of applicants. Online colleges are famous for letting everybody start. Which approach is better? You can decide. But when you stop to think about the students who are welcomed by StraighterLine, the question takes on a different focus.

    Barry Lenson

    A World without Borders for International Students Recent events in Egypt show that when students connect online, they have the power to change the world. There’s no mistake about it – the Internet has created a new international community of students who can share ideas and motivate each other without ever meeting face-to-face.  And there’s more to this trend than Twitter of Facebook. Online learning is part of the picture too. Online learning breaks down international borders. It is no longer necessary for a student in Egypt – or France, or Poland, or China – to attend college in just his or her own country. All of them can now take online college courses that come from other countries too. We see this trend here at S ...
