Overview

Online education is rapidly getting worldwide recognition as an accepted form of learning. It has undergone so many changes in over 10 years of development so that nowadays even the most prestigious universities from across the globe offer online classes and even an entire curriculum for distance learning. With digital media advancements such as video conferencing, online education is now within the reach of nearly anyone, even those located at the remotest areas of the planet where it is possible to set up the technology.

But is an online degree program the best choice for you? For one thing, much of the social aspect is removed from the online learning setting. If you’re a social person who thrives greatly on people interaction, then you might find an online education unexciting and not have the long-term mindset required to complete your online degree. If you throw yourself into learning online for the practical reasons of it such as relocation issues, cost effectiveness and international experience, then perhaps online education can be greatly advantageous for you.

If you’re exploring how online education works, then this book will be very informative to you. It will give you a general idea of the workings of an online education to help you decide if it can be a good route to take rather than attend actual university. By and large, this book will aid you in examining your options for online degrees and provide you with an over-all portrait of the online learning experience so you get familiar with the concept of a virtual instructional setting.
