I was pretty excited to see that a Education-Portal.com review was on the work from home teams shortlist!
I don’t know if you read them but the last couple of “educational resources” that I reviewed but both were very poor. Would this one be any different?
I was hoping to find that the Education-Portal.com was a website worth bookmarking, so let’s see if it is, or if it’s another crock of rubbish heading for the tip!
Education Portal serves a few purposes:
- Career Guidance
- Educational snippets in article and video form
- Free online courses
- A resource for researching schools
On first landing at the homepage the thing that hits you first is the fact that the site is a resource…a tool to be used. I liked the fact that it was really easy to navigate and find what I was looking for, so I started to have a good look around their website.
It wasn’t long before I got the feeling that http://education-portal.com was going to be an asset, and not only for college education but life skills too. Click the image to watch the video.
Digging into their “about us page” gave me a much better understanding of what Education-Portal.com are trying to achieve. Here’s a snippet about what they have to say about themselves:
Here at Education-Portal.com, we know that ‘accessible’ doesn’t mean the same thing for everyone. For some students, an accessible education means better funding and scholarship opportunities. For others, it means finding the right information to make the most informed choices about degree programs and careers. We’ve designed Education-Portal.com to provide information, education and funding, which means that we have everything you need to get started on the path to education and career success.
The statement certainly seems to be backed up by what I was reading on the website. The next section that I had a good browse through was the education portal blog, and this was packed with articles that were all relevant to topics covered on the main website. More importantly the articles contain “useful” information that you could use instantly to improve your career and educational prospects.
Earn The Lowest-Cost College Credit From Free Courses – Education-Portal.com
The Education Portal really comes into it’s own because of the amount of free education courses they have that actually earn you college credits… most free courses don’t lead to college credit. The free courses at Education Portal Academy’s do, and here’s how it works:
1. Watch free video lessons.
2. Take free quizzes.
3. Pass an exam to earn real college credit.
This is why I think that the Education Portal full course list is certainly worth a bookmark.
Education Portal Review Summary
The Education-Portal.com website has re assured me that there are educational resources available online that are free and very high quality, and the detail of information that can be found is in my opinion, fantastic!
A good variety of training lessons in a good spread of alternative educational media. The use of the school rankings is great for finding the right academic course with the best reputation for success in your state.
I highly recommend you take a look because this Education-Portal.com review could never cover the full extent of what is available in so few words, so head over to their website and be sure to let us know what you think below!
