The popularity of online education continues to grow as programs evolve and students look for more options to access higher education. Online degree programs allow students to take courses with flexible scheduling and to access programs that may not be offered at local colleges or universities. Online education works very similar to traditional colleges; except for the fact that courses are taken over the internet.
To access lectures, most online colleges have education portals where students attend classes and can download assignments and other handouts. For some courses, chat sessions are used to promote student-student and student-teacher interactions. In these situations, teachers will often require a minimum amount of participation to pass the course. In online education, lectures times often vary depending on the class. For some courses, lectures can be downloaded and students can study on their own time. Other courses may require students to attend lectures at specific times. 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 through email or the education portal.
With the increased popularity of online degree programs, more and more choices are available for people who want to earn their degree online.
