Is online education for me?
Earning a degree from a college or university is a life-changing accomplishment. But until relatively recently, the possibility of pursuing higher education was much less possible for non-traditional students: parents, working adults and those who happened to live in areas where commuting to a campus just wasn’t feasible.
The proliferation of Internet access and affordable technology has changed all that and we’re proud to say that we were at the forefront of the online-education movement when it began in the early 1990s.
Although online and distance learning programs have been around for more than two decades, many students still have questions about online education:
- What does the online learning experience look like?
- How does it work?
- How does it compare to the traditional classroom experience?
- Am I tech-savvy enough to learn through an online program?
We’d like to answer these questions and do it in an easily-digestible way—through an infographic that you can take with you, share and repost at your leisure.
