Online education provides students with a new way to access higher education. Online colleges have two major advantages over traditional campus-based colleges: the ability to access programs that may not be available locally and the ability to take courses with flexible scheduling. These advantages are particularly important for people who work during the day and want to continue their education at night. For online degree programs, students take classes over the internet.
Students typically access lectures and download assignments through an online portal, which acts as the student's educational homepage. To foster student-teacher and student-student interactions, most online programs require a minimum amount of participation in online chat sessions. 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 at their own pace. Exam types also vary by course and teacher. Some classes allow students to submit tests through the portal (or email) by a specific time, while other classes, require students to take tests online during a set time period.
With the increased popularity of online degree programs, more and more choices are available for people who want to earn their degree online. For more information about schools that offer online degrees, see our list of online colleges below. To speak with an admissions counselor, click the request information button. 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.
