Four myPLACE℠ Online learners, Mimi, Marcella, Handan, and Priscilla shared their experiences with online learning during a panel facilitated by Jennifer Kobrin, Associate Director at the Commission. The learners varied from a new mother to a great grandmother, but all shared the common goal of continuing their education and starting on a path to a new job or better career.
“There was always someone there to help me and it was easier on the learner,” Marcella said reflecting on her six week myPLACE℠ Online course. The women all agreed that myPLACE℠ Online is a flexible and comfortable way to learn while juggling busy schedules and multiple jobs. Their instructors were very attentive and quick to give feedback, and they found support and encouragement from peers in their online cohort.
