Distance Learning Becoming a Popular Path in Prisons – College Classes

Via Scoop.itThe eLearning Site

For years it has been very difficult for someone in jail to reach any type of educational program. Internet availability has been very limited to inmates; they were cut off from easy access to the wonderful educational resources that the World Wide Web has to offer free citizens. According to an article by the Guardian, not only are some jailed citizens getting online now, they are actually earning degrees and securing jobs to go to once they have been released.

  1. We’ve found there is still a big limit to inmates’ access to the internet. Our courses are completely online and often require work to be submitted by email or via the online system. There are still restrictions on how much access to the internet is available. Some prisons are developing their own intranet system that could aid further access to online study. We hope this grows in the coming years.
