Orem, Utah - Jacki Allred of the Association of Web-based Learning announced
the 23rd of October that high school and college accredited courses instructed by certified teachers delivered by the internet are
now available for treatment Programs across the country and the world.
This announcement comes at a timely point when the educational programs of
treatment facilities are being challenged.
Initial courses that are available include; algebra, history, english, and
literature. Reactions from current students favor such courses as Romeo and Juliet and Edgar Allen Poe. Within 6 months over 130 courses
will be on-line.
The Association of Web-based Learning courses include interactive, electronic
communication with certified instructors, multi-media delivery of content and complete on- line grading and test taking.
Classes create an exciting interactive educational experience that is often
more personal than experienced in a face to face classroom.
