As students, we all have our own type of learning style.  Our learning style defines how we take in, understand and process information as well as impacts our ability to problem-solve.  Most of us have more than one learning style, but there is often one dominant method that we relate to more than the others – a personal combination that is uniquely ours.  It’s important to note that no one learning style is superior to the others.  In fact, we should always work at developing our less dominant styles to help us adapt to all types of instruction.  Understanding your own personal learning style will help you determine the most optimal way for you to study and take in new information.

A Message from the Founders of Ed4Online

Welcome to Ed4Online! 

We believe in the power of education and specifically online education to challenge us and help us grow. We both have PhDs in counseling psychology and understand the need for lifelong learning. We see the best in people and hope that they will always want to grow in both wisdom and knowledge.

We started our journeys in private practice as psychotherapists but quickly realized the need for ongoing education to improve one’s chances for a happy, healthy, and successful future. We both entered the education industry as a way to support our desire to assist people in their growth and to attain their goals in life. Since the early 1980s, before online education was available, we taught in secondary education, at the college level, and in corporations leading people to a better understanding of themselves and the world around them.
