Online Education Reporter > Online College Courses
|Online college courses offer you the chance to earn a diploma or degree in a wide variety of subjects all from the comfort of your own home and learning at your own pace.
Online courses are offered in the arts and the humanities, business, computers/IT, education and teaching, health and nursing, and science, technology and engineering, as well as social sciences (eg criminal justice) and various trades and career programs.
Courses range from basic certificates of attainment and diplomas, to associates and bachelors degrees, and up to higher level degrees such as masters (eg MBAs) and even doctorates.
Studying online offers people with work and family commitments the chance to further their education and careers. It also offers education opportunities to people living in remote areas, to disabled people, and to people in other countries with less developed educational opportunities.
Online college courses are like the old college correspondence courses but have the advantage of being delivered over the Internet rather than by the postal service (which means richer, multimedia educational materials, quicker feedback, and better communication with teachers and other students).
At the end of your online college classes, you will receive a certificate, diploma or degree that is exactly the same as that awarded to fulltime students who have the time to attend the educational institution in person and five days a week.
Completing an online college education will give you the credentials to help you secure a promotion or a better job.
