Paul Greenberg

My favorite teaching goal is creating a level playing field where students get to explore their interests, follow their dreams, develop new skills, and test their limits while creating lifelong friendships and expanding their professional networks. What I like most about online education is the access it provides. From working parents and busy professionals to deployed military personnel, online education brings the professors and the education to the student, on their own schedules.
