As more people look to further their education, online degree programs provide another option to access higher education. Advantages of online education include the ability to take courses with flexible scheduling and to access courses anywhere a student has access to the internet. This is particularly important when a degree program is not offered locally. For people who wonder how online degree programs work, courses are very similar to traditional campus-based college classes; except that students access the classroom through the internet.
To access the classroom, most online programs have education portals where students can also download lectures, homework assignments and other handouts. These portals are also used for online chat sessions that are designed to promote student-teacher and student-student interactions. For lectures, times vary depending on the course and the teacher. Some teachers require students to attend lectures at specific times, while others allow students to access lectures online on their own schedule. Exams also vary by course and teacher. For some courses, students take exams online during set time periods, while in other courses, students submit exams online or through email. For online colleges in Colorado, some classes also allow students to access teachers on campus.
