Online master’s available

first_imgStarting fall 2011, USC master of communication and public administration degrees will be offered online  to meet an increased demand from students.Students enrolled in the online program will have access to the same faculty who teach on campus and will develop online virtual communities while still partaking in the Trojan Family, said Jack Knott, dean of the School of Policy Planning and Development.“The online program offers the opportunity to provide a quality, state-of-the-art education to the 21st-century students,” Knott said. “[The program] fits students’ learning style through the Internet and social networking and it fits students’ lifestyle of juggling careers, family and education.”Founded in 1995, Embanet has provided USC with the program to offer online courses. It has been one of the pioneering companies in offering online services to students, said Paul Gleason, senior vice president of Educational Operations at Embanet.For Embanet, offering online courses is vital to those students who want to pursue graduate education but don’t have the means of doing so in a classroom.“Each course is specifically built to deliver learning in interactive ways to achieve curriculum learning outcomes. Ultimately, our greatest accomplishment is bringing high quality to students and institutions together,” Gleason said.For the master of public administration, acceptance into the program is extremely competitive with an expected enrollment of 85 students in the first year, Knott said. Within the next four years, the goal is for 200 new students to be enrolled in the program.“It is important that we enter the market early and establish our presence,” Knott said.For USC, Embanet will provide program and course conversion, marketing and enrollment services, online faculty training, student services and technology development and support.“It accommodates students who cannot come to USC’s campus in person, who need a more flexible schedule for professional or personal reasons,” said Ernest J. Wilson, dean of the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, in an e-mail.USC began exploring the advancement and opportunities of online learning within the past couple of years, Gleason said.Knott said there has been a demand for these online courses, and a survey revealed that alumni have strong interest and support for an online degree.To begin the stages of building this online education program, Embanet must work closely with the faculty to create a pseudo-campus learning environment while also building up a strong student assembly.Some students feel that being able to get a master’s degree online will benefit those struggling to juggle career and work, while others are more skeptical.Stevee Eads, a sophomore majoring in public relations, said online  learning will be detrimental to the success of the student and their academic endeavors.“I don’t think this is a good idea because students need one-on-one interactions. You don’t get the full understanding or experience unless you are learning first hand,” Eads said.While not totally opposed to it, Tim Baumann, a sophomore majoring in business administration, is skeptical of whether the quality of work that goes into earning a master’s degree will be up to the same standards as in previous years because of the attitude some students have toward online classes.“I wonder if employers and other academic instructions are going to feel the same skeptical feelings and whether or not that is going to make USC look less like the prestigious academic institution it is and more like the other run-of-the-mill online universities that serve a different function than I believe USC does,” Baumann said.On the other hand, some students said they feel this type of learning is inevitable because of how strong the Internet has become.“It’s a good idea because the Internet and education are continuing to intertwine. More classes and books are being offered online. If you can get a degree by not leaving your home, it will be much easier, especially if commuting is tough,” said Alex Matros, a sophomore majoring in business administration and cinematic arts.Whether the students are in favor of it or not, the online opportunity to earn a master’s degree will be launched in the fall 2011.“I am hoping that students will use the skills and knowledge they receive in our first-rate MPA degree to make a significant contribution to their community, the country or internationally,” Knott said.last_img read more

Snowshoes shrink as appeal grows

first_imgALBANY, N.Y. – Over the past 30 years, snowshoes have shrunk. Once resembling huge wooden tennis rackets strung with catgut, most models now are about twice the length of your boot and only a few inches wider. Snowshoers say the design changes have revolutionized the sport, making winter hiking and backpacking more popular while drawing more endurance athletes into long-distance racing over snow. “The market used to be people that harvested maple syrup … trappers and ice fishermen,” said Richard Havlick, whose company began making snowshoes in 1965 in Mayfield, in the Adirondack foothills. With aluminum frames about 8 inches wide and 25 inches long, most snowshoes now have plastic decking, bindings and sharp metal crampons underneath for gripping ice and hard-packed snow. A pair costs from $100 to more than $200. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Most snowshoes weigh less than two pounds each. Racing models tend to be lighter and smaller, typically worn over running shoes instead of boots. Sanctioned races require a minimum 120-square-inch functional surface, said Mark Elmore, United States Snowshoe Association sports director. Even for backcountry hiking, they seldom are more than 10 inches wide and 36 inches long. The oval bear-paw design, with wood frames and traditional laced decking, is still preferred by a few traditionalists, especially for deep powder in open areas. According to Adirondack guide Dennis Aprill, snowshoes were invented 6,000 years ago in Central Asia for hunters and trappers to float over deep snow, and they stayed essentially the same until the 1970s, when Sherpa Inc. introduced aluminum frames. A pivot bar at the opening where boots attach to bindings made it possible to affix crampons or cleats for traction, and the solid neoprene deck could float more weight, permitting a smaller surface. “No longer did the snowshoer have to walk ‘Popeye-like’ with wide awkward 13-by-39-inch bear paws. The gait could be more natural,” Aprill wrote in “Short Treks in the Adirondacks and Beyond.” Havlick recalled attending a 1977 race at Ticonderoga in the eastern Adirondacks, which commemorated the snowshoeing exploits of Rogers Rangers in the French and Indian War. “Some teams came down from Canada. Mostly everybody was running on big old wooden snowshoes,” Havlick said. “They were running and tripping and falling. It was kind of fun.” Jeff Clark of Saratoga said the racing equipment has evolved even in the past six years. “When we first started out, everybody wore a type of snowshoe that had long pointed tails, which throw up a lot of snow,” he said. “When you started a race, it looked like a snow cloud.” Racing shoes are generally more oval now, Clark said. “It’s important to make sure you have a good harness and a good support,” he added. “Without a good harness, you whang the snowshoes against each ankle as you go. It’s never good to come home with bruised ankles.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
