    SwCA Episode 137: MYTH WARRIORS! - "Taking college courses online is easy!”

    in Business

    SITE: http://www.courtneyanderson.com/swca-episode-137-myth-warriors-series-taking-college-courses-online-is-easy.html


    SHOW NOTES: In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. The topic for this episode is, “Taking college courses online is easy!”


    This is a myth. If you already have completed one or more college degrees, it is a myth yet you have a higher probability of success with this modality of college classes (as college classes are not easy whether online or on campus).


    Is it “true” that many people are taking online college courses? Yes.


    “According to Columbia University’s Community College Research Center, for example, about seven million students — about a third of all those enrolled in college — are enrolled in what the center describes as traditional online courses.” (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/19/opinion/the-trouble-with-online-college.html?_r=0)


    If everyone is doing it (i.e., it is popular), it must be easy, right? Wrong.


    “Students preferred direct instruction if they expected a course to be difficult, singling out math and science [...]. They also preferred a face-to-face setting when studying subjects they considered interesting or important, especially if the class was in their major. Many of the students said they learned more when the instructor is present.” (http://articles.latimes.com/2013/apr/25/local/la-me-ln-study-online-20130425)


    “[C]ourses delivered solely online may be fine for highly skilled, highly motivated people, but they are inappropriate for struggling students who make up a significant portion of college enrollment and who need close contact with instructors to succeed.[…]” (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/19/opinion/the-trouble-with-online-college.html?_r=0)

    Stronger Together talks with Lamont Carey, Founder/CEO of Contact Visits

    "Before the Transition is the Transformation...Improving the lives of ex-offenders and at-risk youth"


    Valerie and Rev. Ray talk with Mr. Lamont Carey, Founder and Executive Director of Contact Visits, a nonprofit organization assisting at-risk youth and ex-offenders.


    Contact Visits was founded by Lamont Carey on June 7, 2001.  The vision to form this company was birthed while Lamont was serving his own multi-year prison term. When preparing for release, Mr. Carey took classes in business management and non-profit management, marketing, accounting, finance, and other business-related topics. Additionally, he was offered stress and anger management, decision- making, substance abuse prevention, life skills, and other courses related to preparing to re-enter society that he felt were not effective.


    Mr. Carey’s first responsibility with Contact Visits was to develop more effective programs to address the needs and issues surrounding soon-to-be released felons, ex-convicts, and troubled youth. He is also responsible for the daily management of all operations, finding locations for all three facilities, hiring and managing staff, grant writing and fundraising, bookkeeping, contract management, public relations, interaction with federal and local government agencies as well as other non-profit service providers, budgeting, sourcing of training and educational personnel, creation of curriculum programs, and marketing.

    Style with Trysh ~ Jon Marc

    in Entertainment

     


    K.Secret Dunbar is CEO/Founder/Creative Director of Jon Marc and Secret7; both under the umbrella of Seven Curves. Her passion for fashion began at the very young age of two, when she insisted on dressing herself.


    Growing up she’d often altered garments for a polished fit as she developed her curves. Before graduating high school she secured a management position in retail; it was then when she realized fashion was not only her passion it was also her purpose. A few years later, she opened a brick and mortar; this was the beginning of her seeking a place in the fashion market as a retailer. Although the business was successful, it was still difficult for K.Secret to find manufactured garments to fit the curvy hourglass figure of her and customers with the "curvy woman" issue. Very frustrated she resorted to altering inventory to compliment the shape of hourglass curves. Eventually, she constructed an entire garment and from there was inspired to design for women with the same curvy women complexes.


    K.Secret soon discovered with fashion design and apparel construction there was a need for fashion education. A stickler for perfection she closed the business and pursued a full time degree in Fashion Merchandise and Retail Management at the Art Institute of Washington. During her studies she discovered a great love for Fashion History, Product Development, Merchandise Management and Branding; these courses were the foundation of her future in fashion as a designer. Shortly before receiving a Bachelor’s Degree, her research solidified the demand for her niche in the market; women with hour glass curves. This revelation was the births of Jon Marc- a clothing line for women with hourglass curves, Secret7- the footwear line (coming soon), and Seven Curves- the online boutique.
