Adult Education Online

Adult education doesn't require standing in a registration line. You don't have to juggle a work and school schedule to make it work. You don't have to drag yourself into night classes and you don't even have to deal with a roomful of annoying kids who'd prefer to be anywhere else other than class. Adult education is undergoing a huge change. Capella University is a perfect example of the new way.

Capella doesn't have a physical campus. It's a completely online university. It's also fully accredited, offering multiple degree programs at both the graduate and bachelors levels. It has a student enrollment of nearly 18,000 and continues to grow.

Part of its success is attributable to its flexibility and "virtual campus", but part of the reason Capella is doing so well relates to its faculty. Take Professor Sara Orem, for instance. The professional coach and management expert has worked with large corporations and governments. She owns and operates here own firm. She's recently published a new book on the topic of appreciative coaching. She's also part of the Capella faculty. With adjunct professors like Orem, it's no surprise that those who are looking for a way to "go back to school" are flocking to Capella.
