Higher Education with Satellite Broadband Internet Connectivity

in Education
Earning a degree or certification is an investment toward a brighter future. Lately, it seems as though higher education has become impossible. Every time we turn the television on, we see tuition costs going up, scholarships are becoming minimal, and loan interest rates are astronomical. The costs of housing, books, tuition, and supplies have driven more and more students away from Universities and traditional higher education. This has been increasingly difficult for those living in rural areas. But, satellite broadband internet has paved the way for people living in difficult areas to get a higher education at an affordable price.
Years ago, people in rural areas worked hard, sacrificed, and struggled so their children could go to college and get a higher education. They wanted their children to have a better life than they did. Leaving the country and seeing other places and how other people lived. They knew that college offered this experience. It was a struggle, but they knew that their children walking away with a Bachelor’s Degree guaranteed them professional careers. Now, with the price of education and the demands of employers, a Bachelor’s degree is almost equal to a high school diploma. This means that the youth of today must spend longer time in college to get at least a Master’s degree to meet the demands of employers and become marketable in the work world. This is yet another slap in the face for those living in rural areas who already struggled to pay for a four year degree. But, with rural area high—speed internet, these families have a chance at higher education at an affordable price.
Families now have access in these rural areas to satellite broadband internet. This fast high—speed internet service opens many doors and levels the playing field for educational opportunities, making it equal and affordable. Parents no longer have to worry about housing, high tuition costs, and books. They no longer have to worry about supplies and costly lab fees. Students don’t have to worry about the cost of living anymore. Many college students get to stay home, work, and go to school at the same time. This reduces the stress of finances and allows them to concentrate more on their studies.
In fact, most Universities are realizing this and jumping on board, offering on—line courses at discounted prices. Universities saw a change in the trend when enrollment started dropping. They invested money in having elaborate websites built that would allow student to earn their Master’s degree and even Doctorate on—line. Students in rural areas were able to access an on—line University through fast high—speed internet connections and enroll. They were then able to take all their classes on—line. Everything they needed was at their finger tips as schools then began uploading books on—line and mailing out supplies to students.
As employers began to see the change in education, although they demanded higher degrees, they became less infatuated by the elite college degrees. Attending on—line Universities became more wide spread and more accepted by employers. With satellite broadband internet enabling kids in rural areas to gain higher education, soon it won’t matter if you go to Harvard or take Harvard classes on—line. Technology is creating equality in education.
