What is online college like?

Many of the folks here have spoken to the upsides of online college, and warned of the downfalls of unaccredited schools (which is an unfortunately common predatory practice). One easy way to work with that is to take online classes from a school which also has a physical presence.

While there are a lot of models of online college, ranging from MOOCs to going nuts on Kahn Academy, there is also a steady movement toward accredited brick and mortar institutions offering online options.

From an online teacher's perspective here are some thoughts:

While recorded lecture is very common, most successful online teachers at my institution have other kinds of interactive activities ranging from forum participation to chat-room sessions and online resource exploration (things like virtual blackboards for showing equations and answering questions). While there is a lot of independent work, there is often some kind of effort made to take advantage of the knowledge of the group as a whole.

It's important to note that while many online classes are largely self-paced, they also take place within the framework of the academic quarter/semester. This means that there are often due dates, and there is practical time limit related to the end of the grading session. I have seen far too many students fail because they waited until the last week (of eleven) to access the course, figuring that they could just power through.

Speaking of, students need to be aware that time management is a much bigger concern in an accredited online college course. Perhaps the biggest benefit to face to face classes is that most students tend to pace themselves with the rest of the class and issues themselves workload corrections based on what they see others doing. If they aren't seeing what others are doing, most of that social pressure is going to disappear. It's not a guarantee, but it's something to be aware of. A student should ask themselves if they do their homework because it needs to be done, or because their friends are doing it.

It's also important to reach out to your instructor, especially because it doesn't happen as automatically in an online course as it does in a face to face course.

The online colleges can work for some people. People who opt for online colleges are interested or are busy with their primary work and cannot attend the college physically. There are various programs and courses where it doesn't take much time to complete. We can say they are secondary courses.

Those who are used to formal education will find it difficult to be consistent with the online colleges. So my suggestion would be to first opt for a short term secondary course and if they are suitable with the teaching methods and their own self, being consistent towards the course timings they can an

Those who are used to formal education will find it difficult to be consistent with the online colleges. So my suggestion would be to first opt for a short term secondary course and if they are suitable with the teaching methods and their own self, being consistent towards the course timings they can analyze their potential to go for an online college or not.

It has to do with the personal self, being consistent towards something and to try new methods different from what everybody is used to.

Online education is on its growth and many people are going for it. There can be many pros and cons for the online colleges as there are various technical requirements to successfully complete online sessions like internet, laptop or any video streaming device, resources to go for during the lecture.

So those who are applying for the online college have to see the resources and their willingness to complete the college tenure and gain useful knowledge.

Well technically and literally there is nothing like online college. What you can do is either you can pursue the course as regular student by attending the classes daily or else you can go for Distance Learning.

You can go for distance learning too but incase of distance learning I will suggest you to go either for some sort of job or some other expert certification courses so that you could gain a dynamic profile along with the formal graduation or masters course.

Distance learning is very helpful for those who are working. Because through distance learning they keep gaining professional cours

Distance learning is very helpful for those who are working. Because through distance learning they keep gaining professional course and also keep earning work experience too.

But if you are a student then I will not suggest you to go only for Distance Learning unless you do not have a parallel planning about your future.

Ah...online. No classes, you may watch lectures. There may be tests. Be careful, many are not accredited so any credit will not transfer to a real university and any degree may be worthless.

It is not that you cannot learn on-line. There is MIT's open course ware (OCW) and other free materials. MIT won't give you any credit nor will anyone else.

Some colleges do have courses that are mainly online. They also have real campuses with labs, lecture halls, and tuition.

In online learning mode your exams and learning will be online.

Online Live and Interactive lecture you will get which you can access through your laptop, mobile or desktop.

It’s not an ideal option for many learners.

"The vast majority of MOOC learners never return after their first year, the growth in MOOC participation has been concentrated almost entirely in the world's most affluent countries, and the bane of MOOCs—low completion rates (2)—has not improved over 6 years." - The MOOC pivot

An online college is an academic college that can be earned primarily or entirely through the use of an Internet-connected computer, rather than attending college in a traditional campus setting.

Vijetha Academy is the best college for the distance education and online degree courses in Hyderabad.

Do be careful that the institution is accredited as Chris infers. The ones I design for are divided into modules, each with on overview (video or text), reading, web resources, assignments, and discussions. They are not self-paced and are instructor led.

Go online and search for online colleges, and read. That shows that you can work online to find things. Right?
