Over recent years, online learning has become global in its influence, and the market is fast becoming flooded with providers offering online courses. PAL supplies the student with a useful combination of interactive English-language learning, an institution-specific orientation, and home-stay and cultural information.
Online learning is already the medium of choice for millions of learners worldwide, and millions more will join the revolution. Surveys of Chief Academic Officers at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) reveal how public and private institutions are navigating the world of online higher education. Once a student is accepted by college or university, there is often a waiting period before the student actually moves to the host country.

It will not kill traditional methods; on the contrary, traditional providers are already incorporating online courses in their existing models. PAL is a versatile programme that provides institutions with an online tool designed to make the most of that waiting period before they travel to start their study. International access to the internet, and even via iPhones and tablets, means that resources are available any time, anywhere there is internet availability. One online programme, offered by London-based Training Connect, has solved the problem of remote learning and the lack of a live tutor and classes. Tutors will be able to timetable special, face-to-face lessons as and when desired, to fit with student requirements and tutor availability.

A tutor in the UK can teach Business English to a dozen international students simultaneously, with interplay between tutor and student, and student and student. And probably the most appealing advantage of online learning both for institution and individual is the cost.
