I know several people who have gotten an online degree and are glad they did. If I didn’t have a degree, I would consider getting one online. For someone who had young children at home and wanted to get an online teaching degree, I think that would be great to be able to get a degree from home and be able to study at one’s convenience.
One online site that received attention from TIME Magazine and NBC is Western Governors Online University, founded by 19 U.S. governors to help working adults. I like the fact that it is nonprofit, is competency based, and emphasizes that each student masters the necessary skills in order to receive a quality education and succeed. If I were getting an online degree, I would consider WGU considering all of the positive things I’ve read.
