Online Education

The Evidence on Online Education

June 29, 2009

WASHINGTON -- Online learning has definite advantages over face-to-face instruction when it comes to teaching and learning, according to a new meta-analysis released Friday by the U.S. Department of Education.

The study found that students who took all or part of their instruction online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through face-to-face instruction. Further, those who took "blended" courses -- those that combine elements of online learning and face-to-face instruction -- appeared to do best of all. That finding could be significant as many colleges report that blended instruction is among the fastest-growing types of enrollment.

EEG Technologists Needed for Hospitals !

Long Distance Education

Since the school operates as a hybrid long distance educational provider, the faculty, students and diagnostic equipment are not located within the school facility. Students receive didactic instruction on-line through Webstudy™, a web based course management system, which allows for 24/7 access to classes and materials. In addition, students receive resident clinical training at a local Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) accredited laboratory or medical center near them.

Course work and lectures are presented by experienced faculty members who are board certified in their field and have (on average) over fifteen years of clinical experience. You'll find that classroom discussions are geared toward common, real-world work challenges, so you can begin using your education immediately on the job. Additionally, all of our faculty are professional, and dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.

Several Students have called about the ASET scholarships that are available to the IHS students.


American Society of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists Foundation:

The ASET Foundation funds activities in three major areas as noted below. Funds made available through the grants and scholarship will vary depending upon the specifics of the program.

  • Educational grants are made available to students attending CAAHEP accredited END programs. The application deadline for student education grants is June 1.

The grant winners are typically notified shortly upon the conclusion of the ASET Annual Conference.
