What Exactly Are Online College Courses?
Web-based courses provide a cheaper and more convenient education option for anyone who would like to achieve their degree, but without attending an actual college. Study and examination is done online, with material prepared by a whole host of accredited schools. You choose the subjects and courses you want to study and earn college credits when you complete them. These credits can then be transferred to a regular school.
Some obvious benefits of online study are:
Convenience – being able to study anywhere, any time is a massive advantage. This is especially true for people with regular jobs or other family commitments. There are no restrictions or timetables to adhere to – you put in the work at the most convenient time, and location, for you and your busy schedule.
Cost – this is a really big one. It is not unusual for students to save five figures or more just by choosing the online study route rather than attending a regular college. Providers such as Straightlerline mention savings of up to 60%.
Obviously choosing what and where to study is a big decision, so we’ll be producing helpful guides and articles regularly on this site to aid you as much as possible through the process. Most importantly, we’ll also be publishing in-depth reviews on the most popular providers of online education. We hope these will shine some light on the whole process for you and ensure you make the best decision for your future career – whatever your current situation may be.
Online study is a particularly popular choice for the earlier general education courses that are completed at the start of a degree program, with a student then attending a traditional school to complete the final specialized years of their degree.
