My name is Ron Schiesz and I am a faculty member at the College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, Illinois. As a major part of my responsibilities I work closely with students who are enrolled in distance and alternative delivered courses offered through the Centers for Independent Learning (CIL). In the past I coordinated the Independent Study/Special Projects Program at the college when a full-time faculty member at the College. Recently I have created several web sites that are designed to assist distance learners to gather information online to help them in making more informed decisions. These online resources cover course selection, career and graduation planning, planning for assessment & testing services, course transfer information, receiving credit for prior learning, as well as arranging for personal and life transition counseling related to education. You may visit these web sites at…
