Online education provides students with a new way to access higher education. The advantages of online degree programs include flexible scheduling and the ability to access programs that may not be available locally. This is particularly important for working professionals who have obligations during the day and cannot attend a traditional college. For people wondering how online education works, students access the classroom over the internet.
Students typically access the classroom through an online portal where they attend classes and can download lectures, assignments and handouts. To promote student-teacher and student-student interactions, online programs often have chat sessions where a minimum level of participation is required. In terms of lectures and exams, types vary by course and teacher. Some courses require students to attend lectures and take exams at set times, while other classes allow students to download lectures and finish exams at their own pace. If the online college also has a campus in Alabama, some courses allow students to access teachers on campus as well.
With the increased popularity of online education, more and more choices are available for students who want to earn their degree online. For more information, browse the list of online schools below and request information to speak with a representative from that school. Several good questions to ask an admissions counselor include: how do students access lectures, how do students take tests and how much do students interact with teachers and fellow classmates.
Accreditations and affiliations: when speaking with an admissions counselor be sure to ask about the types of accreditations and affiliations the school has completed.
