Michigan Association of School Boards is pleased and excited to be offering online classes to our board members. As we've ventured into online learning, we have learned from our board members that the convenience of taking classes online is a great service to our board members who have difficulty traveling to different locations to take CBA classes. Online classes have enjoyed tremendous growth in popularity in recentyears. The convenience and flexibility are key factors in the success of e-learning opportunities. The following comments of one of the board members who took an online class represents many similar comments made by other board members.
In response to the question, What are the advantages to taking an online class?, the following comments were made: "I can do it at midnight if I need to when the kids are in bed. I don't have to travel long distances. I can interact with other course participants at their leisure. I make interesting contacts and develop my email address list. I can network with my colleagues in other places at any time. I can access the WHOLE WEB in terms of resources. It is really something that MASB should continue to develop as the advantages are endless."
