9780071357135: Get Your Degree Online

Institutions from top universities to technical schools are taking advantage of the rich resources and opportunities of the worldwide web to offer online classes, courses, and even degree-granting programs. It has never been easier to complete your education without leaving home. But how can students determine which programs are genuine and which are scams? How can students maximize their learning experiences with the kinds of programs that are right for them, and the kinds of degrees that will take them the farthest after "graduation"? Matthew Helm and April Helm have the answer. Get Your Degree Online is a top-notch directory of the best distance-learning programs available. But the book offers so much more than a directory. Readers will learn about the various delivery methods involved in distance learning, the advantages and disadvantages of this form of education, and how to make sure distance learning is really for them. They will learn how to determine if a program is accredited and why accreditation is important, and how to tell real education opportunities from fly-by-night scams. They will even find out how to get financial aid for their online education. The book covers more than 350 degree programs.
