Distance learning is a way to make education available for everyone

Introduction

My name is Jita Hoogerduijn, I am working at the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht in the Netherlands. My focus is research, international affairs and education of nurses (bachelor and master level).

Distance learning

I am interested in distance learning as I know there are many (health care) professionals all over the world, but especially in developing countries and upcoming economies, who don’t easily have access to an university. Those people are eager to gain up to date information and to learn more about their profession. Distance learning is a way to make education available for everyone.

“Teaching an Online Course”

I followed the course ‘Teaching an Online Course’, just to have at least one experience being a student and to learn more about how to develop an on line course. It was a meaningful experience. It gives me as a student the opportunity to organize my own program, but it also needs a good control of my agenda. I learned more than I can practice the course showed me a lot of possibilities that are useful for the development of my own course. I recommend this course for everyone who wants to start with the development of online courses. You really need this, it makes the first steps less complicated.

Benefits in daily work

As a result of the course I discussed with colleagues the possibilities of e learning. Participating in the course helped me to start with the development of my own on line course that I teach.
