Drexel University Online Promotes Online Education Through New Blog

Philadelphia, July 31, 2008

Drexel University Online announces the launch of its new blog, e-Insights. E-Insights will feature some of today’s hottest topics in online education, while also providing informative posts about technology, software and podcasts. The interactive blog will offer readers a chance to offer comments, provide articles about online learning, and audio interviews with influential business leaders. Contributors to the blog include Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director of Drexel University Online, Dr. Paul Evangelista, instructional design coordinator for Drexel Online, and Brenda Pretko, instructional designer for Drexel Online. Their unique blend of experience and approaches to online learning will afford readers with a wide range of topics and insights into the world of e-Learning. “There has never been a better time to launch this type of blog,” said Hartman. “We’ll report on the latest and greatest in the field of e-Learning, and offer readers a chance to share their expertise and opinions.” Blogs have evolved since their creation in 1997 from personal online diaries to professional networking tools. Drexel University Online enters the blogosphere as one of the few online universities with blog content available. The site will serve as a portal for prospective students to learn more about online learning, and as a voice for the online education community.
