    What is the benefit of an online college?

    I really want to know if I should go to an online college.
    I have determined that I really want to get more schooling, but I don't really know where to start!

    There are a lot of business of online college

    *flexibility to study where and when you want
    *flexibility to self direct your study
    *depending on the type of course, you benefit from the collective knowledge of the group through shared postings and discussions (very powerful)
    *You can practice your writing and critical thinking skills
    *You learn how to flex your muscles to prepare for participating in the knowledge economy.

    One thing, make sure you chose an accredited institution. Not all online programs or colleges are created equal.

    Do your research. There are many online colleges that operate today, such as the University of Phoenix, that was sued for fraud. The reason why the University of Phoenix remains open is because the lawsuits that they lost did not make national headlines like it should have.

    You can read how two University of Phoenix enrollment counselors made $9.5 million dollars each by defrauding students. Read about this here:

    Personally I think its great! I've taken 4 online courses in the past year or so, and I liked them better than in-person classes. I have a job and try to go to the gym at least 4 times a week, so I don't have a lot of time for anything. With online classes you can sometimes start assignments early, turn in homework early, and you never have to drive to a classroom. It takes a lot less time than traditional education smile Hope that helps!

    Online degree are slowly becoming the norm, with so many people wanting to earn and learn at the same time. They are a blessing for students who cannot drive to college every day, moms who need to stay back home for family, and professionals who wish to advance in their career and need to enhance their educational qualification. Then there's the flexibility they offer – there are no fixed classes to attend, you decide when to study, you set your own pace. As it's online, you get a chance to meet a diverse group of people from across the globe, as opposed to a fixed set of students you'd meet in your college class, which can be a truly enriching experience. At the same time, online studies require a great deal of commitment and self-motivation on the part of the student. If you feel you're up for it, then I suggest you take a look at the programs offered by Stevens-Henager. It’s a good idea to check out everything you can about the college you wish to apply to. I googled Stevens-Henager College complaints – found that they've been given an A rating, which is a good sign. It's good to check out a college's rating by a third party review like the BBB.
