Understanding An Online College

Oct 8, 2007
It can be incredibly difficult to attend college when you are a little bit older and have professional and personal responsibilities that make attending classes somewhat difficult. Sadly, despite the fact that a significant percentage of working students attending college many colleges have never developed a proper method of accommodating these students. In all fairness, part of the reason that colleges have not accommodated such students is the lack of a format capable of accommodating everyone. In other words, the school can not have 145 English 101 courses offer per day with each class starting a five minutes after the hour, ten minutes after the hour, fifteen minutes after the hour, and so on. Well, the problem of accommodation is on the verge of extinction thanks to the arrival of the "online college" format which is an internet multimedia correspondence program that is FAR MORE credible than the silly mail order education systems of decades past.

Granted, there will be certain courses that will require attending a "brick and mortar" school. Courses that involve a great deal of laboratory work will need closer supervision, for example. However, when it comes to lecture courses, there is absolutely no reason why an online college module should not be employed. A lecture is exactly that: one person speaking and addressing a crowd. In this case, the person speaking is an instructor who is addressing students. With a multimedia program that is recorded and able to be played at any time of the day or night, the problem of being unable to accommodate a student is eradicated. Of course, within a "live" lecture there is the ability to have a question answered immediately. However, there is really nothing stopping anyone enrolled in an online college can have their questions answered via email or other such communication.

What is brilliant about an online college is that it makes education available to all without restrictions. While some may have financial concerns regarding attending such a college, there are also educational grants and loans that are available to those looking to attend. So, it would seem that the growth of these online educational programming will continue and this is a good thing because this will greater empower more people in society with all the benefits that such an education can provide. Because of this, it will be no surprise when these unique colleges grow rapidly in popularity over time.
