eduKan Distance Education | Innovating Education
eduKan’s Associate of Arts degree (A.A.) is designed to transfer to a four-year college or university should the student want to continue their studies.
All of eduKan’s learning materials are digital, meaning there are no books to buy, and all of the program materials are available online with each class, making it easy for the student to have the right materials at the right time. The student only needs Internet access and a mobile device such as a tablet to access the learning materials.
eduKan’s online associate degrees require the same commitment as on-campus associate degrees, but they can be completed entirely on the Internet, from the comfort of the student’s home or workplace.
Helping education become accessible and affordable.
eduKan is keenly aware of the difficulties students have in finding affordable education. eduKan has implemented a host of technology innovations to help keep costs down from digitally embedded content for online learning to elimination of proctoring saving thousands of dollars a year in educational fees. Additionally, eduKan’s ELL program combines achieving an AA degree with learning English, saving 12-24 months of language emersion courses other schools require.
Work with eduKan through a partnership program.
eduKan is currently seeking brand partnerships to help them bring this program to ELL’s around the globe. Funding technology from tablets and mobile devices to scholarships will help those who seek to learn English and earn a college degree a dream come true.
The opportunity to help the 52 million residents of the United States who are of Hispanic origin and wish to learn English or obtain their degree is challenging. Outside of the US, such as in Latin America countries, there are millions more who wish to get an education and learn English in the process.
eduKan takes out the challenges and provides access and opportunity to ELL's around the globe, especially when hindered by time, location, and funds.
Scalability. eduKan has this covered.
Employers can offer this program to their employees to help them advance within their organization, technology and mobile communication manufacturers can offer scholarship programs to their customers and subscribers to help them earn their degrees and other colleges and organizations can work with eduKan to make this program available to their communities.
eduKan's platform is one of the top learning management systems on the globe and this program can scale on a global level. Currently, eduKan manages an online enrollment of over 5,000 students with a staff of six.
