Massachusetts Online Colleges and Universities

Online Colleges in Massachusetts

Overview

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. These advantages are particularly important for people who work during the day and want to continue their education at night. For people wondering how online education works, 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. For some classes, participation in online chat session may be part of the course requirements. These chat sessions are used to promote student-teacher and student-student interactions. Lecture times vary depending on the course. For some courses, online lectures are at set times that students must attend, while others, allow students to download lectures and study on their own time. Exams types also vary by course and teacher. For soome courses, students are required to take tests during specific time periods, while others allow students to submit their work through the portal or by email. Some online degree programs are connected to a local college or university in Massachusetts. In these situations, some teachers allow students to meet with them in person during office hours.
