Education-Portal.com Review

Education-Portal ReviewI 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.

Education Portal Review VideoIt 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!

I would love to write coursework for this company! But I still haven’t figured out how they would get the money to pay me. How do they get money, if their product is free and they don’t get kickbacks from the testing? Do they sell advertising space?

    Hi Margret,

    Thanks for visiting us and taking the time to comment, but I’ve an “not so” off the wall idea that I really want you to consider.
    Our #1 recommendation was created with you in mind. You have already acknowledged that you have the knowledge and experience to create content that people would pay good money for..

    I think it’s time for you to take the challenge!

I just had a look at the medieval literature clips from this outfit. While they are engaging, they are NOT the equivalent of college work at competitive institutions like Berkeley, Harvard, Stanford, NYU etc. The Chaucer modules are really high-school level discussions and the assurance that students will not have to learn any of the “difficult language” (in Chaucer’s case, essentially modern English) also smacks of first-year community college level. It is not that these are useless, but selling them as constituting serious college-level work is just wrong. [Berkeley Medievalist]

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and share your experiences of the content over at EDU portal. It’s great to hear your view on what’s found. It really does sound like you’re an expert in the field – and as such I completely understand why these free educational clips may not be up to the standard of college work at competitive institutions like Berkeley, Harvard, Stanford, NYU etc

    But then again I suppose when it’s a free supposition engaging to prompt further research is the objective.

    Cheers for visiting, and sharing your thoughts

What if am not enrolled in any college, I just need college business hrs. do I need to enroll in a college to get credit for this web site?

    Tony - September 24, 2013 Reply

    Hi Sofia,

    I’m really not sure about that one. I think the best move is to ask the institution that says you need ‘college business hrs’ if the hours of work you do at EDU portal would count towards what’s needed.

    Sorry I can’t be of any more help but I’m sure they’ll put you straight.

As I read through the reviews from Tony, they are very much encouraging. I am someone new interested in studying with Education.Portal.
But I have just one question, has someone successfully completed a course with Education.Portal and was accepted by a university or college?

Cheers,
Freddie.

    Tony - July 24, 2013 Reply

    Hi Freddie,

    I still feel that the main purpose of Education Portal is to add extra credits to your edu portfolio of booster your chances of getting the placement you want. I personally can’t answer if anyone has successfully completed and was excepted just on that alone. But they do state “Credit Accepted at 2,900 Colleges” – so the best place to start your questions I suppose is one of those closest to your home.

    Cheers for dropping by Freddie –

Great review!! Whew, am I glad to know there was a site out there that was able to confirm what I thought! I had just started a course & wasn’t sure if the site was as legit as it seemed. Before I got too far into the course, I decided to see what reviews were out there, if any. Keep it up! The information you provide is definitely making an impact.

    Hi Erica and thanks for the thumbs up.

    I’m glad that we were able to help you make a decision .. I think it’s a pretty god resource to brush on on the fundamentals.

    I’ll keep it up if you keep coming back ;)

    Cheers

I was curious about the college credit myself, so I checked with my local colleges (Lane CC and University of Oregon), and the U of O accepts the credits. You don’t actually take the exams on the Edu-Portal website — the site gives you the study materials and lessons to schedule a test at your local test center, which happen to not be affiliated with Edu-Portal. So far it’s really helping me brush up on my Spanish skills for the CLEP test. A+ in my book!

    Hey Victoria great to hear that they are working great for you.

    I too think that it’s a great site for helping you brush up on topics.

    Good luck on your Spanish Test.. I expect to hear you get an A+ yourself soon :)

    Best wishes

    I’m glad to hear that I just started with the business law course …My questiion to you if you don’t mine..Do you need to be enrolled at a specific university or college before taking exam.?

      Tony - November 6, 2013 Reply

      Hiya Sylvia,

      To my understanding you do not need to be enrolled in any institution to take the exams.

      Cheers

To be a bit cynical, any site can say they give you college credit, but it doesn’t really count for anything unless it can transfer to an accredited school. Have you actually found that schools will accept these credit transfers, or are they only good on the website?

    Tony - January 27, 2013 Reply

    HI John,
    As I stated in the review the vast benefit of free resources was what I found to be great about Edu-Portal. And although I personally haven’t called them a college…there is a list of which schools except the credits passed on by the program on their website.

    Best wishes,
