In addition to the course descriptions and costs, there are some other important things to research before choosing an online Adult Education degree program.
Do the same faculty teach both online and offline courses? A quality program will offer online courses developed and taught by the same professors who teach in the university classroom.
What additional learning resources are available? Many university libraries offer at least some materials online. Some have arrangements with a consortium of colleges and universities nationwide to provide online students with library access.
Will my degree be the same as a student receiving a degree on-campus? Most traditional universities offering online degrees make no distinction between a degree earned online or on-campus. There are some online-only universities which grant degrees that designate the student as having completed an online program.
