(Inside Higher Ed) U.S. Virgin Islands residents who have completed the Cyberlearning Digital Literacy training and moved on to the higher-tier Advanced Training courses are part of an educational and professional revolution! These courses are known collectively as MOOC: Massively Open Online Courses. MOOCs have actually become a pathway to college credit in recent years. Here’s how it works:

  1. Complete the courses of our choice and obtain your certificate(s)
  2. Create a portfolio and discuss your accomplishments with the Admissions department of the university
  3. Find out if the courses can be accepted or qualify you for College Level Examination Program placement
  4. Continue to build upon your educational foundation and/or satisfy prerequisites

This is the advice of Paul Fain, contributor to Inside Higher Ed, an online news, opinion and classified source for those interested in all forms of higher education. While the time period to enroll in the Cyberlearning Digital Literacy courses for USVI residents has passed as of October 30, 2014, viNGN highly recommends the Khan Academy to continue online training in computer and web, academics, test prep and much more!
