Distance Education Through a Learning Management System
Consider the following case:
Would you take your canine, feline, or other companion to a veterinarian who obtained a degree by taking distance learning courses? A Learning Management System is one of the best things that can happen to an institution, educational or not—but is it the best thing that can happen to veterinarians? What about their unwitting patients?
The Veterinary Services Careers Program (VSCP) Learning Management System training includes, apart from instructor-led classes, distance learning courses, which are available online, on VHS and on DVD. Impressively convenient. But effective? That’s another story.
Not all Learning Management Systems yield beneficial results. Consider whether this is a topic of importance to you, and check your veterinarian’s (or other professional’s) credentials to assure peace of mind.
