Online degree programs provide students with another option to access higher education. Online education has 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. This is particularly important for working professionals who have obligations during the day and cannot attend a traditional college. In online education, students access the classroom over the internet.
To access lectures, most online colleges have education portals where students attend classes and can download assignments and other handouts. Chat sessions are used to promote student-teacher and student-student interactions. For some classes, a minimum amount of participation in these sessions is required. 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. Since teachers cannot prevent students from using materials during exams, tests are often more in-depth. Students may also be required to take timed tests online during specific time periods.
As online education increases in popularity, more and more choices become available for students who want to earn their degree online. For more information about online degree programs, browse the list of online colleges below and request information to speak with an admissions counselor. When speaking with an admissions counselor, be sure to ask about how students access their classes, the typical amount of student-teacher and student-student interactions and how students take exams.
Accreditations and affiliations: when speaking with an admissions counselor be sure to ask about the types of accreditations and affiliations the school has completed.
