Online Education is the process of learning a degree or course online or using internet. A program for which all the required coursework for program completion is able to be completed via distance education courses that incorporate Internet-based learning technologies. Distance education courses are courses that deliver instruction to students who are separated from the instructor and support regular and substantive interaction between the students and the instructor synchronously or asynchronously. At times, requirements for coming to campus for orientation, testing or academic support services are available for some of the online degree programs and is also available for post graduate programs such as an online master’s in education degree program.
And things to look for in Online Graduate Degrees are as follows,
Accessibility: Attend online classes from anywhere.
Flexibility: Work when it makes sense for you – at night, morning, wee-hours. You’re not tied to a class schedule (usually)
Interpersonal Breadth: Your peers will include students all over the country and even the world.
Cost: An online education does not require that you relocate to a new place or that you forgo full time work.
Documentation: Documents, transcripts, live discussions and training materials are all archived and recorded so that they can be retrieved
Access: Instructors are also available, respond quickly through email, and generally are prepared to work with diverse students with a range of lifestyles and needs.
