Online University Degree, The Pros and Cons

The inquiry that is frequently asked is whether a degree earned through an online organization is worth as much as a degree acquired from a customary college. Late studies, including one did by the University of Phoenix, have demonstrated that there is no huge distinction between separation learning and classroom learning.

Be that as it may, an online degree has its offer of advantages and disadvantages. The undeniable preferred standpoint of an online degree project is that the understudy can be found anyplace on the planet, but then select and seek after a degree course at a main instructive organization, for example, the University of Phoenix Online. There are no altered classroom timings, and it is up to the understudy to choose and pace his or her degree program. The understudy gets to all study material on the web, and communicates with the workforce through straightforward email messages.

It is sometimes argued that in an online degree program, the classroom environment is missing, and the student either depends on material that is supplied by the University, or needs to reach out to the online resources such as online libraries.

The success or failure of an online degree program also depends on the student’s self-discipline. While a traditional classroom situation ensures that the student adheres to the timetable, an online program often leaves it to the student to define the timetable—if the student is unable to exert self-discipline, there is a possibility that the course might overrun the acceptable timeline.

There are also some doubts expressed about the value of an online degree as compared to a traditional degree. However, if the institution imparting online courses is trusted in the academic world and accredited, an online degree is held in high esteem. The University of Phoenix is both trusted and accredited, and has an experienced faculty that is able to communicate effectively with students online.

The study conducted by the University of Phoenix compared its own campus-based students to distance learners and came to the conclusion that the current online format is the most effective vehicle for distance education. But while this study revealed that on campus learning at the University of Phoenix provides no significant advantage over distance learning with that same University, it would be presumptuous to assume that the analogy also extends to other online universities.
