MOULTRIE -- Moultrie Technical College recently announced an innovative way of meeting the needs of students who seek educational preparation for the General Education Diploma Test.
For years, Moultrie Technical College has helped adults pass the GED Test through traditional classroom instruction, but every year many adults take the test without the benefit of formal GED instruction. There are many reasons why adults are not able to enroll in a traditional GED preparation program. Some of the most common reasons are work schedule conflicts, childcare issues and lack of transportation.
Through the use of technology, Moultrie Technical College can now offer classroom-quality instruction to all adults seeking their GED where and when it is convenient. The integrated Internet/CD program was developed by McGraw-Hill/Contemporary. This program combines the effectiveness of proven GED instructional content with the remote communication strength of the Internet.
Students can use the program at home or wherever there is an Internet connection, regardless of connection speed. With this innovative program, students can study toward their GED whenever it is convenient. GED lessons address all the skills necessary to pass the GED Test and use high interest graphics, interactive activities and powerful videos from sources such as CNN and the National Archives. Students can communicate with their GED instructors through the special online management system, which also tracks student progress, records all scores, tracks the student time on task and reports GED readiness.
Moultrie Technical College has been committed to educating its community members for 40 years. It provides the following educational services: certificate, diploma and degree credit programs in the areas of allied health, business, personal and public service and in a wide range of technical skills; the choice of classes on five campuses in Colquitt, Tift, Worth and Turner counties and through Online Studies; non-credit, personal and professional development courses through Continuing Education; career and job search assistance; financial aid assistance; and GED preparation.
