I consider myself a lifelong learner and will always be looking forward to learning something new. I have a heavy interest in the areas of online learning, curriculum design, cognitive learning theory, and technology design. With that in mind, I thought it would be interesting to share some thoughts and evaluations of higher learning institutions of which I have been part of.


My own personal review of five schools I have been part of, whether in teaching or in learning.

I have ranked these IMHO from Highest to Lowest - For the Quality of Learning Provided: 
(Note: I plan to add review for CTU at a later date).

Notre Dame

Notre Dame:

A great online program. One that other online learning institutions should take note of and model other programs after.

An excellent total online learning experience for higher education and post graduate work This school has recently expanded it's programs to include Doctoral studies.

A premiere online learning program for those seeking a PhD. Not many others out there that are available of this caliber.

Weber State:

One of Utah's top universities. Weber State is known for contributing to Utah's aeronautical and applied science fields. A traditional brick and mortar school that is attempting to expand into online learning as well.

Eagle Gate

Eagle Gate:

A career-focused learning institution providing more of a "train" rather than "teach" type of learning with accelerated programs that provide skills that can be applied towards jobs in the marketplace.
