Benefits of Study.com vs. Traditional College

Instructor: Lahari Subraveti
What if you could have a more flexible, affordable, engaging and efficient way to help your employees pursue a GED or general education courses? Study.com can be a great alternative to a traditional college setting.

Who is Study.com?

Study.com, unlike a traditional college, gives students the flexibility to watch lessons anywhere and anytime at their convenience. Each video lesson is 5-10 minutes in length allowing students to break down a course into small pieces they can watch in their free time. This type of option is especially useful for users who have other obligations or priorities such as a full-time job or a family.

Why choose Study.com?

Study.com is affordable. Study.com members get full access to courses, quizzes and other assets for a small monthly fee. Students can take proctored exams and earn credit for a small fraction of the cost of a traditional college. This credit can be transferred to over 2000 colleges around the United States though articulation agreements and transfer guides created by Study.com in conjunction with each college to make the transfer process seamless. In addition, Study.com provides access to success coaches, who are dedicated to helping every student envision and achieve their educational goals.

Benefits of the Study.com Format

People have different learning styles and Study.com understands that. Not everyone is a classroom lecture learner, so Study.com created short video lessons. The short video lessons are engaging and allow students to pause, rewind and rewatch lessons to grasp concepts. A transcript below the lesson also allows users to read along while watching. In addition, lessons come with short quizzes to test knowledge and a course tracker to track progress while taking a course. Students also have access to instructors to answer questions and get the most out of Study.com.

Study.com is the simplest, most efficient, lowest cost way to earn college credit. Choosing Study.com as an educational provider enhances the learning experience and facilitates continuing education for all.
