Faculty Acceptance of Online Education
Chronicling the evolution of online education among U.S. and European higher education institutions these past twelve years has been a story of amazing successes, coupled with some disagreements. Key among the successes are that online courses and programs have provided millions of potential students will access to higher education that they otherwise might be denied because of time or geographic constraints. The millions of students taking online courses today is ample evidence that this modality is meeting a clear demand on the part of students.
By recognizing the online training programs, the European Polygraph Association intends to open to a wider audience the opportunity to learn about this noble profession. Polygraph art and science will be accessible to all, without discrimination, without barriers, at lower price.
We are in a new era that will allow as say stop to those who intend to monopolize education programs, pretending to be unique. The polygraph is no longer a franchise in the hands of a particular association. The knowledge of this profession does not have exclusive owners. Facilities with own sufficient knowledge are entitled to transmit them through a careful education, assisted by technologies that today are openly widespread, as Internet and Online courses.
