The Growth of Distance Learning

Distance learning is greatly reshaping our educational system and how we view traditional learning. It has absolutely had a major influence on the learning process.

As an alumna of an online Master’s program at Hofstra, I feel that my distance learning courses and programs resulted (surprising to me at first!) in a deeper relationship with my classmates and the material within my online courses through discussion boards and technological avenues for communication. Technology allows students, specifically in online courses, to explore specific topics thoroughly and in greater detail and provides greater opportunities for discussion, and exploration. It has truly been a life-changing experience so far, and I have confidence that it will continue to grow in popularity in the future.

Did you know that the Career Center is on the cutting edge and is activity participating in this distance learning revolution? Can’t make it to one of our workshops on campus? The Career Center offers career-related webshops on Blackboard that are accessible to all Hofstra students.

Here's a list of all the webshops that we offer:
- Introduction of The Career Center
- Resume Writing
- Introduction to Internships
- Interview to Impress
- How to Work a Job Fair
- Job Offer: Know How
