5 Great Reasons To Get Your Degree Online

Aug 17, 2007
Colleges and universities worldwide are offering an unprecedented number of online courses for students. Online education is every bit as difficult as a traditional education, especially for individuals that lack self motivation. The best part is that just like a traditional school, you will be able to apply for grants and scholarships. Getting an education online offers more than you might have ever thought possible. We've outlined some of the benefits to getting your education online as opposed to getting it through traditional means like local colleges, univertisies or trade schools.

1. No Transit Means You Save Time

Not only is this a great opportunity to learn at your own pace, but you will be able to learn anywhere, even in your own home. Even if you spend only an hour or two going from home to school each day, that means you will end up spending several hundred hours each month just wasted in transit to and from school. Instead, you could use those hours productively! You can also travel and still go to school (of course you'd have to have the self discipline to stay focused on your studies but it's possible).

2. Learn At Your Own Pace

Online learning is a favorite of parents and people with jobs. It allows them to get continuing education despite the fact that they have very demanding schedules. You will get much more one on one instruction in the distance learning course because you can always contact your instructor by email or video conference.

3. Learn Better

- Accommodates multiple learning styles and mediums
- Fosters greater student interaction and collaboration
- Enhances computer and Internet skills
- Skip over material you already know and focus on topics you'd like to learn

4. Learn At Your Own Pace

A typical course only has one day per week of instruction time. When you are in control of your own studies, you could do much more than that and potentially graduate years ahead of your peers. Also, because all course materials are always available via the web, there are rarely class limits to online courses.

5. Great Price

If you look around the internet you will find classes that are very inexpensive compared to a regular college or university program. Be sure to research the program carefully before you enrol. University professors often record their lectures to present online as part of the course. In addition to all that, you will save money on transit costs, parking fees, housing costs, childcare fees, and having to pay for expensive food at the university cafeteria.
