The Rights and Wrongs of Online Education

Read more Online Degrees articles: http://j.mp/29Nvnds

There have been ongoing studies on the state of online education and one of them was the study published by the Sloan Consortium. One thing that has persisted among all the various researches and publications is that the rate at which students are enrolling into online education is on the rise. Is this what to smile or frown at? Read on.

Online education has come to stay

No matter your views about online education, the truth is that it has come to stay and is gaining wider acceptance by the day. You have to accept the reality or risk being swept away by it. It is therefore important to eliminate from mind any form of prejudice one has for online education over the traditional form of education.

The risk of substandard education took a leap with online education

One of the problems that educational system of many nations faces is that of substandard education. From time to time, the Ministry of education in most countries sweeps on brick and mortar schools and seal up the ones that falls short of expectation. This same measure has not been effectively implemented online leading to the growing number of online schools that are not particularly interested in the student’s learning, rather a means of enriching themselves.

Be sure that your course of choice can be effectively taught online

Courses that require much practical works like engineering and microbiology cannot be taught effectively online because projects needs to be properly supervised by a professor so that he/she can point you in the right direction if you derail and also be sure that you did the work you report. The aforementioned courses are better learned in the classroom. Courses in the social sciences and arts are better suited for online study.

Find universities that offer your choice course

When you must have decided on what to study and verified that it can be effectively taught online, the next step is to make a long list of universities that offer your choice course and gradually trim the list down to a short list of between 5 to 10 schools. It is wrong to just pick one university at random. You should be able to justify why you favored one over the others.

Bear the tuition fee in mind

The skyrocketing tuition fee is a source of concern and you should consider your financial aid carefully before picking a university. Better to go for a cheaper alternative than to start and stop halfway because of lack of finance.

Verify the accreditation status of your choice university

Before you finally enroll, make sure that the school is accredited by the responsible body to run online degree. Most employers would only accept online degrees from accredited universities when offering employment. At this stage, you need to be friendly with technological gadgets because they will be your companion till the course lasts.

The first wrong step is approaching online degree with mental laxity

An online degree is not less stressful than the traditional education except that this time you are more in control of your time. Basically, the curriculum of online and traditional education is the same and you really need to study hard to make it out with good grades.

Make sure it is suitable online degree is suitable for you before you jump in

The second wrong step is that some people just want to flow with the trend and take no time to consider if it will be suitable for them. Online degree requires self-discipline, focus and perseverance. If you do not have these, don’t bother wasting your time and money.

All about Online Degrees: Facts and Rumors

Read more Online Degrees articles: http://j.mp/29Nvnds

There are conflicting stories on the Internet today about online degrees. The ease of access to the internet and creation of blogs have made it so. There are false testimonies about online degrees that if a prospective student stumbles on them may reconsider taking one. In the next few paragraphs, the truth and the falsity of online degrees will be unveiled.

Online degrees are cheaper

Not only is their tuition cheaper, a student taking online degree cuts cost in many ways such as accommodation, mobility or travels, bills and taxes and so on. Not everyone can afford to board a plane to a strange land to acquire a degree. They can do it in online education if they have a computer and an internet enabled device.

Accredited online courses adhere to strict rules

Critics claim that online courses are not accredited. This is totally not true – maybe some time in the past it used to be so but not anymore. There are accreditation bodies that strictly monitor the activities of online degree to ensure they adhere to the laid down principle. A breach of the code of conduct may lead to withdrawal of accreditation.

Online degrees are not of lesser quality

It may be true that when online degree was unchecked the faculties awarding these degrees may not really bother about the quality of the courses they offer online. With the presence of regulatory bodies however, they are under compulsion to up their standards or quit. Presently, there is no difference between the quality of educator offered by the brick and mortar schools and online schools. Also, accredited schools are creating online courses as a way of expanding their reach now.

Online degree can get you a job

Another myth is that online degree cannot get you a job because employers discriminate between the two classes of degrees. The word has changed tremendously. Every establishment is aiming to go digital and that means more computers would be required. Many employers need employees that are technology savvy and an online degree is a testament to that. However, there are still some employers that will still stick to degrees obtained through traditional education.

Online degrees are not easier to get than traditional degrees

Some students have this obnoxious mentality when enrolling in an online school and it costs them in the end because they fail to give it their best shot, thinking that just a little effort will get them there. Online degrees are no less difficult than the traditional degrees because it requires a lot of discipline juggling between daily activities and studying particularly for working people.

Online degree gives room for interaction

The thought that online degree is an isolated form of learning because the student would have to download the lectures and study on their own to make sense of it is false. Reputable schools offering online education always make room for students to interact with their professors if they are having challenges either by mail or by phone call. There is often a portal where students can interact with one another.

You may have dedicated live lecture times

It is true that online degrees are flexible because you can study from home or anywhere you like. However, there are times you may be required to log in at specific times for live video lectures. All the programs will give you deadline for submission of assignments and projects and exam schedule have to be strictly obeyed.

Views of Different Companies about Online Degrees

Read more Online Degrees articles: http://j.mp/29Nvnds

People are turning more to online degrees as a means of furthering their education. This is particularly true with the employed and those who are highly engaged in one way or the other. While there are people that will readily quit their job for an academic pursuit, others may not readily thread that path because of future uncertainties.

Traditional education requires your physical presence

This is the type of education that is widely practiced across the globe. Students are required to be physically present in classes. In some faculties across the globe, attendance of students to classes is taken and students must attain a minimum attendance to be allowed to sit for the examination. This may not be convenient for a person with a job.

Classes are taken using computer and Internet connection in online education

Online education can be taken anywhere. The lecture notes are uploaded online and students only need to log in to their profiles online and download the lecture notes. This is a more flexible form of education that can fit into the work plan of any one.

The preference for traditional degree has not changed much

On a smaller scale, degrees obtained online are beginning to be recognized by companies. However, the old-timers or old generation companies and recruiters still hold on to the superiority of traditional degrees to online degrees. Their reason is hinged on the excuse that they cannot verify the source of the degree or its authenticity.

It is becoming easy to verify online degrees

Their reason may not be much of a reason anymore because there are bodies that now carry out accreditation for online education thereby adding some kind of credibility to the process. Also, accredited universities are constantly expanding their academic form to accommodate online education. Basing rejection of online degree on authenticity should no longer be an issue.

Fly-by-night companies are ruining the reputation of online degrees

There are several online institutions that are dishing out degrees for a nominal fee. These companies are further putting the future of online education and the future of those who take online courses in jeopardy because their presence will justify the reasons given by companies for exempting online degrees from their list of accepted qualifications.

Some company executives are not in support of the discrimination

In an interview, the founder and president of Executive Press Inc., Lewis Littleman, was asked about his opinion concerning the online and traditional degree disparity. He quickly said that he had never had such experiences but also agreed that he had overhead some company executive direct recruiters not to send them candidates with online degree.

Online degree will break even with time

In 2012, a research showed that over 4 million people were enrolled in online degree. The number has skyrocketed ever since. Though the results of 2015 have been hazy, it is projected to be significantly higher than the result of 2012. With this current rave, online degree may become the majority of the certificates to be presented in any recruitment exercise.

New generation companies are more dynamic

New generation companies will readily accept an online degree as a qualification than the old generation ones. This is probably because new generation companies are highly concerned about staff efficiency. They believe that anyone who can combine online education with other duties is good at multitasking which is a vital tool for increased output of any staff. The hope of online degree holders lies on the new generation companies springing up every now and then.

Read more Online Degrees articles: http://j.mp/29Nvnds

Education is essential for everyone, not just for the purpose of getting a job but it also helps individuals to expand their reasoning so that they can easily solve problems that present to them. However, education comes with a price which not everybody can afford. How then can people who are in dire need of education but without money afford quality education?

Campus education is becoming increasingly expensive

The cost of obtaining a campus education is continuously on the rise. Besides the rise in tuition fees, students have to also grapple with accommodation and feeding costs including mobility in some instances. All these would make it difficult for those who are not financially buoyant to try to afford campus educations.

Online education is a cheaper alternative

There are so many reasons that make online education a cheaper alternative to the classroom education and one of them is reduced tuition fee. Besides the tuition fee, the student would not have to worry about accommodation or any of those other aforementioned expenditures because they would be taking lectures from the comfort of their rooms.

Online accounting courses are becoming popular

Unlike in the past, online accounting courses are becoming popular among students. The numbers of courses in which students can enroll online are also expanding giving students more choices. The success of online courses has to do with its increased acceptability in the society. It no longer feels like a scam, rather, another form of formal education.

Accredited universities offer online courses

The days have gone when degrees obtained online are disputed. This is because of the high amount of fraudulent institutions online that sell degree certificates. Currently, accredited universities offer degree courses online and their certificates are accepted by employers during job recruitment. It has also become easier for students to spot the fraudulent online institutions because of accreditation.

Online education offers comfort to students

It will be easier to connect to classes online from wherever they are and at any time rather than the traditional form that would require them to come to classes.This flexibility makes it conducive for working class and nursing mothers who cannot easily leave their infants to make the journey to a class because most times they would not be allowed to come to class with their children. They do not have to stop their jobs but can handle both side by side.

Lecture materials are available online

Most of the lecture materials will be available online for download and this is in contrary to the traditional means where students are often mandated to buy a textbook or two. Assignments would also be submitted online and this saves the student a lot of money in buying and printing materials.

Getting enrolled in online computer science can help the student be in know

Technology is evolving at a speedy rate. What may seem like a trend today quickly goes out of fashion the next minute. Enrolling in online computer degree will allow students to discuss latest advances in computer technology. This keeps them in the know of latest advancements in their course of study.

Credits can be transferred from one university to the other

In case there is need to move from one city to another, some universities allow their students to move their credits from one university to the other. The reduction in the movement of students is also important as it also reduces their risk to accidents.

Online Universities Look Like Technology Companies

Read more Online Degrees articles: http://j.mp/29Nvnds

The inception of online degrees was a breath of hope to those who by one reason or the other have found it difficult attending the traditional education. Over close to forty years of its inception, online universities – also known as open universities – have been providing distant and quality education to students using supported open learning.

Online university champion learning using technology

A hundred percent of the learning process of distance education is done online using various technological gadgets. This is one good attribute they possess particularly with the dawn of the internet age. In a way, they are encouraging their students to be technology savvy which is a vital skill needed to remain relevant in the new technologically driven society.

The confusion between online universities and technology companies

There is a growing confusion as to who to call an online university and who to call a technology company. It is not clear whether to call an Open University a technology company because they make use of technology to achieve their purpose. On the other hand, some companies insist that they should be called technology companies for one reason or the other.

An insider’s account of Yahoo

Yahoo is one of the companies that are yet to be fully evolved or reach their full potential. Paul Graham spent time in Yahoo in the late nineties and came up with an interesting article which is suggestive that Yahoo is ambivalent and at a point of time considered themselves as Technology Company rather than just a company and still insist on calling themselves a media company.

Technology companies differ from media companies

The difference between the two is somewhat slim; the reason why one can easily be mistaken for the other. The company in view at a point in time had developers and programmers writing codes and developing softwares. These are pats of the qualities of a technology company but the problem was that they sold ads which are the major source of income for media companies therefore to many, they remained media companies.

Making money through ads was a limitation to Yahoo

It is natural for every company to focus more on the money spinner and so did Yahoo. They enjoyed the funds coming in from the sale of ads, therefore coding and programing became a commodity rather than staying in the heart of the culture of the company. For this reason, they lost the attention of good coders resulting in a not so good product.

Change in story began with the coming in of a competitor

When Google began to make her presence felt by attracting top coders and staff always on their toes to solve problem, the story changed. They definitely began as a technology company and have sustained the tempo ever since. Amazon is also considering herself as a technology company rather than a retailer although in the real sense of it they should be called online retailers because they are looking to sell everything.

The benefits of technology company attitude is enormous

The attitude of technology companies is very beneficial to mankind because they are constantly pushing the limit to what we know and consider possible. This attitude also makes them conglomerate the best talents there are in any field and gives room for organization freedom.

This benefit is being extended into online education

The nature of traditional education is changing as it is being constantly being encroached upon by technology companies in the form of distant education. It seems online universities are not perturbed leading to the question of whether they also consider themselves as technology companies.

5 Glaring Reasons Why You should Enroll for an Online Degree

Read more Online Degrees articles: http://j.mp/29Nvnds

The evolution of technology and the Internet has affected different facets of human life and has shaken her very existence to the core. It has changed the way business is done, the way we communicate the way we move from place to place and the sweeping change has found its way into the way learning is organized.

Students have accepted online degree immensely

The amount of students enrolling for online degree has continued to increase steadily from what it used to be over forty years ago when the program was first instituted. Currently, millions of students enroll in online degree every year making it the most attractive alternative to obtaining certificate in different courses or field.

Online degree is facing a few challenges

May be in the future there would be no limitation anymore to the courses that can be studied online but before we get to that time, we need to know what is happening at the moment. Courses that require huge practical like engineering, lab scientists, microbiology and so on cannot be efficiently carried out online because such students would need to be thoroughly monitored by their professors to make sure they are the ones doing the practical and know if they are doing it correctly. There is no efficient way of ensuring such level of monitoring at the moment.

The standard of online degree is improving

One of the many scares that kept people away from online degree was that the quality of education they offer is substandard. That is not the case anymore because there are regulatory bodies that now monitor online courses and discredit those that are defaulting. Some reputable universities are running online courses which have the same syllable as the traditional courses now.

The benefits of enrolling in online education are numerous

The benefits of enrolling in online courses are numerous and continue to grow as technological advances makes the process more flexible. Some of the glaring benefits are highlighted below.

1. The process is cost effective

The cost of attending a traditional brick and mortar class is spiraling out of control. The tuition fee continues to rise as the economy continues to depreciate making it impossible for many low income earners to continue with education. Besides the tuition cost, other miscellaneous expenditures like accommodation, transportation and so on are eliminated from the picture.

2. It is flexible

Unlike traditional education where you have to attend lectures at specified time, topics and lecture notes are uploaded to specified sites by the lecturer and the student only needs to download and study the materials at their convenient time. This has made it easy for working class citizens to follow up as they work by day and study by night.

3. More courses in one place

The number of courses a traditional school setting can take up is usually limited to the number of buildings they have. In online degree, there is no need for a building making it possible for universities that offer online courses to offer more course choices.

4. Opportunity to study in top ranking universities

Some people especially those in remote places may desire education but will not be able to get it because their immediate environment has none. Online education has removed the location barrier to getting quality education.

5. Opportunity for advancing career

For one reason or the other – like those taking care of their aged parents or nursing mothers – one may not be able to further their career but with online education even the strongest of barrier can be bypassed.

The Level of Value Offered by an Online MBA Program

Read more Online Degrees articles: http://j.mp/29Nvnds

An online MBA really offers value if you can choose the right program. University of Bentley, along with other institutions have developed a hybrid education that will help students who are tied down by busy schedules and other circumstances to fully participate in the education system without have the slightest sense of being left behind.

The cost of obtaining higher education is increasing

Since the inception of online learning platform, the urge to hop on is becoming increasingly tempting as the cost of obtaining higher education continues to soar. Online education is an affordable alternative in a number of ways; the tuition fee is generally lower than the traditional education and other forms of expenditure like transportation and accommodation are taken off the list.

Hybrid education is the bridge between traditional education and online education

Obviously traditional education has a number of limitations that will not make it convenient for everyone to be a part of it. Also, online education can often begin to feel like a lonely planet where students are left to crack any puzzle in their lecture note. In a hybrid education setting, the classrooms are fitted with microphones, cameras and digital processors that make the student feel like they are in the classroom.

Online education still has a problem of standard

The revelation from the studies made by the National Education Policy Center was shocking and to a large extent verifies the fears nursed by many students as regards enrolling for online education. The findings showed that students of one of the largest online school company, k12 Inc., were only able to meet up with the Adequate Yearly Progress Standards by only 27.7% between 2010 and 2011.

Many students would not be able to further their education if not for hybrid classrooms

Many of the students who enroll for advanced education online are working class. Sacrificing a paying job – especially when the pay is more than just a survival ration – may not be a wise option to many people and before now, their academic has remained stalled. With the help of hybrid classrooms, they now have a better shot at education.

Hybrid classrooms are like big computers that have enough space to accommodate several human beings

Hybrid classes have high resolution cameras fitted inside them. They also have microphones for students which are mounted on the ceiling with digital processors. Professors usually make use of wireless microphones and smart boards to ensure effective interaction between participants. Whenever they can, students are encouraged to attend classes in person.

Hybrid education has restored flexibility to education system

Unlike in the traditional education where students are mandated to be in school to attend lectures, the hybrid education makes it flexible in such a way that students do not necessarily have to come to school every day for lectures, rather would come only when they have the chance to.

The performance rate of students taking hybrid courses have been fairly the same

A study have been carried out in a hybrid education on the performance of students that attend all their courses and those who exploit the online part of the learning process and attend classes only a few times every semester. The result showed that there was no remarkable difference showing that the attitudes of the students are the same irrespective of the path they ply.

The number of student enrolling for online courses is on the rise

Over forty years since the inception of online education, the number of students enrolling under it has continued to rise. Late projections of last year have no sign of this trend dropping.

A Close Comparison between Online and Offline Education

Read more Online Degrees articles: http://j.mp/29Nvnds

Education is the bedrock of any nation. The literacy level of any nation stipulates how far the nation can go. The metamorphosis of education over the years has been a wonder to many who have lived long enough to witness it. From word of mouth learning, education is carried out online with little or no supervision from the teacher now.

Both online and offline education have their strong points and their flaws

Inasmuch as the craving is currently on online education, there are still remarkable qualities in offline education that can still motivate anyone to study offline. However, the major advantage of online education still remains that of flexibility and to some extent the student’s ability to cut costs in some spheres.

Universities are beginning to offer online and offline education to attract more student

Due to the rising cost of traditional education, schools have begun losing their students to those schools that offer online education. In a bid to recover some of their students, many universities are beginning to offer online courses now. This is an advantage to distant learners because they can seek quality education from verified and trusted universities now. There is also a verification body that is putting credibility to online education.

Coursera is aimed at professionals seeking improvement in their skills

For professionals seeking to improve their skills through special courses, their search has been put to an end with coursera. Coursera aims primarily at those who want to improve their skills and further their knowledge in their chosen field. One reason why it is paramount to keep improving your skills is that it makes you more attractive to employers.

Online courses have broken the distance barrier

One of the challenges that makes people drop their admission letter into a can of trash is distance. Sometimes, the distance you will need to travel may be too enormous and you will have to endure the stress and it will surely affect your attentiveness in the class. Online education has taken care of that. From your comfort, you can study in any part of the world you want.

Take courses only when you are in the right frame of mind to do so

Offline learning mandates students to be in school every day. There are times when you can be depressed or angry. Attending classes at such times may be a complete waste of time because your concentration will be somewhere else. In online learning on the other hand, you have the liberty to take courses only when you are mentally fit for it. There is also the added advantage of learning in the environment you are most comfortable with.

There is still the apprehension of finding a job after taking an online course

Employers still scrutinize certificates to understand the class of degree they employ and most importantly from which university the student has graduated from. This leads to anxiety among online students – if there is hope for them in the labor market. The students of online education are also not included in scholarships and grants. This is one area that needs to be seriously deliberated.

Online educations does not give room for close interaction among students

Offline education serves the dual purpose of learning and networking. Analysis has shown that the best friends people make in life are usually from schools. This has not been adequately ensured by online education. Though there is interaction in online education among students and professors, the quality of such interactions cannot be compared to that of offline education.
