GIA Unveils Spring 2009 Distance Education Quarterly Online

GIA Unveils Spring 2009 Distance Education Quarterly Online

8 May 2009

For the first time, the Gemological Institute of America’s (GIA) Distance Education Quarterly is available in an online-only version. The Spring 2009 issue has been named the “Emerald Edition” to highlight an Institute-wide green initiative to minimize GIA’s environmental impact.

The Emerald Edition provides comprehensive information about Distance Education programs, courses and Lab classes. It also showcases interactive features including a demo of the recently launched GIA eLearning program, a “Mine to Market” video that takes you from a Colombian emerald mine to the retail counter, and a news segment on the GIA Museum emerald exhibit.

“Transitioning to an online-only version serves our Distance Education students in a more timely and convenient method,” said Kathryn Kimmel, vice president and chief Marketing officer. “Today’s students are savvy with web-based technologies and this is a way for us to offer the information they need in a more accessible and interactive format.”

“The online-only version also reduces the use of essential earth resources, which is the environmentally responsible thing to do.”
