More and more often, people are using the Net to attend college classes and obtain undergraduate and graduate degrees. Atieh's guide covers the "distance learning" trend in higher education in a practical way, focusing on finding the right online program and getting through the admissions process. If you can't attend a traditional classroom program or want to attend a program that's thousands of miles away without leaving home, this book can help you decide if getting your degree online is right for you.
The book is divided into two parts. In part 1, Atieh explains what distance learning is and what equipment and skills it requires. Then he describes how to choose a school, how to apply, how to finance your degree, and even how to find a job after graduation using online resources. Atieh makes it clear that while online education is more convenient for many people, it's not less expensive than regular classes or easier than attending college in person. Throughout this section, he sprinkles short case histories of people who are considering online education.
Part 2 banishes all ideas of correspondence school from your mind. The book lists more than 70 university programs at schools such as Harvard, the University of California at Los Angeles, Duke, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which immediately makes you feel better about the prospect of attending college online. Listings include details such as accreditation status, the number of students enrolled in online classes, costs, Web site locations, e-mail address, residency requirements, and much more. --Elizabeth LewisFrom the Back Cover:
