What are my options for online classes?

By Mary Hobson

There are many more options for earning a degree than simply attending classes on a campus. Today, it is possible to study for a degree in your home by using distance learning methods online. 

Many colleges and universities offer online degrees in the same subjects that they offer traditional degrees, and there are some specialist colleges that only offer online degrees.

Online Program Materials and Methods

Taking online classes means using your computer and a link to the Internet to download all your course materials and communicate with your lecturers and fellow students. 

Assignments are submitted electronically, and in some cases examinations are online. 

Using chat room and messaging technology, it is possible to have online discussion groups and tutorials, and of course, much research can be done using the Internet. 

Some online degree programs do have periodic meetings on campus or at some agreed location, so you can get to know staff and fellow students better, and these often include some group assignment.

Online Convenience

Online bachelor degrees and online master’s degrees allow many people to update their qualifications without having to give up their jobs.  Online classes allow students to choose when they study, so they can fit learning into their normal daily activities.

Online bachelor degrees and online master degrees give many people the opportunity to advance their career and begin continuing their education.
