EDUCATION REPORT - Foreign Student Series: Getting a US Education From Home
教育报道———外国学生系列:在家接受美国教育

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Nancy Steinbach / Broadcast: Wed, 29 Oct 2008 16:00:00 UTC

This is the VOA Special English Education Report.
这里是VOA特别英语教育报道节目。

This week in our Foreign Student Series, we talk about getting an American education online. A student named Hendra has written to us from Indonesia asking about a good online university.
这周,在我们的”外国学生系列“节目中,我们将会谈论如何在网上接受美国教育的问题。一位名叫Hendra的学生,从印度尼西亚写信给我们,询问关于好的网络大学方面的信息。

Finding the right online program requires research, just like a traditional education. Talking to ADVISERS and recruiters can help. Keep in mind, though, that they might have a financial interest to direct you to certain programs.
就如传统教育一样,搜索一门合适的网络课程也需要研究才行。多与指导老师和招生人员交流会大有裨益。不过,学生朋友们要记住,他们可能会因为经济利益而建议你选择某些课程。

Avoid a diploma mill. We talked about this last week. Diploma mills, also known as degree mills, are nothing more than businesses. The education is poor quality, if they even require any class work to get a degree.
避开文凭工厂。上周我们已经谈论过这个话题。文凭工厂,也被熟知为学位工厂,其实无非是交易。即使它们要求学生完成一些课程作业才能拿到学位,其教育质量也是很差的。

The Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) recognizes a group in Washington, D.C., to accredit schools that offer distance learning. One hundred ten programs in the United States and six other countries are accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council.
高等教育认证委员会(CHEA)允许一个位于华盛顿市的组织去认证那些提供远程学习的学校。在美国和其他六个国家的110门课程已经获得远程教育和职业训练局的认证。

We asked the executive director, Michael Lambert, for advice on choosing a distance learning program. He says the first thing is to go on the CHEA Web site to find if a school is accredited. The address is c-h-e-a dot o-r-g.
我们咨询了执行理事, Michael Lambert,请他就如何选择远程学习课程提供些建议。他说,首先需要在CHEA网站上查明开设该课程的学校是否已经获得认证。网址是www.chea.org.

Next, make sure the school offers what you need. Do you need a degree, or will a certificate or license be enough?
接下来,明确该学校提供的确是应你所需。你是需要一个学位证书,还是一份证明或者许可证就已足够?

Another consideration is cost. Often the published price does not include all the costs -- like books. Technology requirements can also add to the costs. Will you need to get new software or a high-speed Internet connection or even a new computer to take the classes you want?
另外需要考虑的是费用。已标明的价格通常未包括所有的花费,比如书。技术要求也会增加花费。你是需要新的软件,还是高速联网设备,或者需要一台新电脑上你想上的课程?

Also, consider the level of interaction that an online program offers. You might never meet the teacher or other students in person. You need to be able to work without the supervision that you might find in a traditional class.
还有,要考虑网上课程提供的交互程度。你可能从不会亲眼见到老师或者别的同学。你需要能够在没有监督的条件下自主地学习,而在传统课堂中可能会有。

Finally, and this is our own advice, find out what others say. You might search on the Internet for comments or ratings or news stories about schools that interest you. Just remember that what people say is not always fair or true.
最后的,也是我们自己的建议,就是从别人的话语挖掘出有用的信息。你可以在网上搜索你感兴趣的学校的相关评论,等级评分,或者新闻报道。但是,要记得人们讲的并不总是公正的,或真实的。

So now we have talked about getting an American education online. Next week, we begin explaining the steps to getting an American education in the United States.
到现在,我们已经讨论了如何在网上接受美国教育。下周,我们将开始说明在美国接受教育的步骤。

And that's the VOA Special English Education Report, written by Nancy Steinbach. Our Foreign Student Series is online at www.unsv.com. I'm Bob Doughty
这就是本周的VOA特别英语教育报道节目,本次报道由Nancy Steinbach撰稿。我们的外国学生系列节目在www.unsv.com网上可见。我是Bob Doughty。

这次翻译有些问题,请网友提出,我虚心接受. MISS HOUR

我现在休学在家。是否能够读网络大学?。 网络大学是否只在国外存在呢? 中国是否也有这样的学校。

Talking to advisers and recruiters can help. Keep in mind, though, that they might have a financial interest to direct you to certain programs. 找到一个好的网上大学就如找一个传统大学一样,需要研究。多与指导老师和招生人员交流会大有裨益。(和导师或者招收人员谈谈能有帮助。)但是要记住,他们可能会因为经济利益而建议你选择某些课程。(自己不会,参照楼主的) Avoid a diploma mill. We talked about this last week. Diploma mills, also known as degree mills, are nothing more than businesses. The education is poor quality, if they even require any class work to get a degree. 避免证书磨坊。上个星期我们谈论过证书磨坊,它也被称为学位磨坊,这只不过是交易罢了。即使它们要求学生完成一些课程作业才能拿到学位,其教育质量也是很差的。(这种教育质量很低,甚至不用上任何课程就可以得到学位。) The Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) recognizes a group in Washington, D.C., to accredit schools that offer distance learning. One hundred ten programs in the United States and six other countries are accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council. 高等教育认定委员会在认可了一个位于华盛顿的小组,授权可以提供远程教育的学校。分布在美国和其他6个国家的110个项目获得了远程教育和培训理事会的授权。 We asked the executive director, Michael Lambert, for advice on choosing a distance learning program. He says the first thing is to go on the CHEA Web site to find if a school is accredited. The address is c-h-e-a dot o-r-g. 我们向执行主管Michael Lambert征求过关于如何选择远程教育项目的建议。他说第一件要做的事就是去高等教育认定委员会的网站上去查找一下,学校是否被认可,网址是chea.org。 Next, make sure the school offers what you need.

Often the published price does not include all the costs -- like books. Technology requirements can also add to the costs. Will you need to get new software or a high-speed Internet connection or even a new computer to take the classes you want? 另外一个需要考虑的事是开销。对外公布的价格常常不包括所有费用,比如书费。技术要求也要加入到这些开销中。你需要新的软件或者高速的网络连接吗?甚至是一台你可以带到课堂的崭新的电脑?(甚至是一台上你想要的课程的新电脑?) Also, consider the level of interaction that an online program offers. You might never meet the teacher or other students in person. You need to be able to work without the supervision that you might find in a traditional class. 也要考虑一下网上课程提供的交互的水平。你可能不会亲眼见到老师或者其他同学。你必须能在没有监督的情况下进行工作,这种监督可以在传统的课堂中找到。 Finally, and this is our own advice, find out what others say. You might search on the Internet for comments or ratings or news stories about schools that interest you. Just remember that what people say is not always fair or true. 最后就是我们的建议了,听听其他人怎么说。你可以在网上搜索一下你所感兴趣的学校的评论,等级,或者是新闻故事。但是要记住人们所说的不总是公平的或者真是的。 So now we have talked about getting an American education online. Next week, we begin explaining the steps to getting an American education in the United States. 现在我们已经谈论了如何获在线接受美国教育。下一周我们将开始讲解在美国获取美国教育的步骤。 And that's the VOA Special English Education Report, written by Nancy Steinbach.

The education is poor quality, if they even require any class work to get a degree. --- 他们不需要学生完成任何课程学习,教育质量极低。 class work 是指为了学习所做的努力,不是 homework/作业。 if ... even ... 是不需要,even if 才是需要。
5楼 作者:mm6ff8 创建: <编辑>  <引用>
adviser:【美】(指导大学新生学科问题等的)指导教授 --- 有的adviser是教授,你念的专业的某个教授,他们是兼职当advisor的。 但人员充足的adviser是全职工作,他们不是教授,他们就是给学生建议的,主要是学习方面的;但其它比如生活或精神方面的也可以跟他们说,他们帮你找其它专业辅助人员。 另外,美国高中就有advisor,不是大学才有。

国内的辅导员干的是不是advisor的工作?
