I have taken many online classes, there have all been part of my degree and through the university and jr college that I am/was attending. I suggest that you go to your local college/ University and take the classes from them. Also be prepared to work hard. I have taken at least 8 online classes and they have all been difficult, you will actually have to read the book and in essence teach your self. If you know that you are not going to work at it then do not sign up. Have a great day.

Ya i agree you with the fact that online education is a bit tough you have to read a lot and that too personally but I feel no difficulty in that. But their are many positive points for me because I can not certainly afford to study in some of the best universities duo to cost factors but at least I can attend online courses and gain from that. Thanks for the comment and good luck for your career.

I almost done with college. In august i will be completely done with it. I have completed all my classes online and it was amazing and its a lot easier for me to do it online then going to a class and doing it. I did find out in the beginning when i started that it was a lot more expensive to have online classes than going to class and i think it does matter what college you choose to study with. It really is all up to what you like and if you like to be in a big class with a professor just talking about the elements of the subject that going to class might be for you if you see reading and emailing is easy and also talking tests online are easy than maybe going to college online is for you. There is a lot of things to go over before signing up for college.

Yes it is quite easy to follow up an online course rather that going to a college as it saves a lot of time and money. Also we can get good professors to interact with no matter in which part of the world you reside.Technology has made things like education really easy and vibrant. Thanks for the response and good luck.

I have followed an online course but I already knew in which university I wanted to follow it. The cost depends a lot on what type of course is on offer. What I suggest is trying to be more specific. What is the subject you want to study? What are the universities that offer online courses? How are exams/testing methods carried out and so on. Ask yourself a series of questions and then do an online search for universities that offer the course you wish to follow. Most of them have faq's that can answer your questions but if you want to be more sure about it, write an email to see what type of procedure they follow. Good luck with your studies

I researched a little about online education here in the Philippines and focused on the national university (University of the Philippines) - I found out that it costs the same to enroll in an online course and in a regular course and that you are still required to meet up at least once a month. I think that online courses are good options for working people who don't have enough time to actually go to the university every day since they go to work and only have enough time left to study after work :) This is a good option for people who want to take post graduate degrees. Or for house wives who want to have a college degree but are still busy with the children :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Blogs are quickly becoming the basis of our new online education. You d not need to go to school to succeed in the modern business environment, but you do need to read the right people's blogs and, when ou feel you ar ready, start one of your own. This is way people get to know and trust you, allowing you to build business contacts in the new digital business model we are forming right now. The key is to read, read, and then read some more. Keep up to the minute with all the business trends you can, but especially the ones relating to your niche. The above suggestions are just places to start, but as you examine these resources you will find more information than you will have time to read.
