Why Cyber Education Works

2009 brought forth a lot of change in my life .The biggest change was making the long awaited decision to return to school.
I opted to return to school fulltime via online courses at Kaplan University, and so far so good. I am impressed with how the classes are conducted, the discussions, and the instructors.
The way online classes are set up is pretty simple. As long as you stay on top of the reading, participate on the discussion boards by posting often and responding to your classmate’s posts, you should be in good shape.
For fulltime working folk such as myself, this setup is perfect.
My question to those of you wanting to return to school in 2010, would online courses be a viable option for you? If so, why or why not?



  1. Although I attend a university, I honestly see online courses as just as good as being in class physically (as long as you are disciplined & proactive). When I’m on summer break, I take an online course and it allows for comfortable learning through the hectic activities of our lives.

    If we have so much time to blog, check email, shop & such online, why not knock out a course or two?

  2. I attend college online. I love it. I can read and do things at my own pace (short of meeting the deadlines), I don’t need a baby sitter, and I still find it to be challenging. It’s not for everyone, though. If you tend to need face to face interaction, it’s probably not for you. If you pick things up slowly, then it’s not a good idea. You cannot go into it reading/comprehending at 7th grade level (I’m not trying to be funny at all). Other than that, I think it is great!

  3. I will be starting on online courses in 2010. I’m nervouse yet anxious to see how it’s going to fit into my life. Prayerfully, very well. *finger crossed*

  4. i will also be returning to college for a master’s, but only to traditional brick and mortar.

  5. I’m returning to school for my masters in 2010. School online is not an option for me. I really enjoy the in class interaction and learning environment. I think the traditional learning environment is more challenging for working adults than taking courses online. But it works better for me.

  6. I have taken online courses and I agree it is not for everyone. I believe that if you are disciplined, self motivated, and can read with comprehension and understand mathmatics, then you may survive an online school environment.
    However if you are a person that does not have any of the previously mentioned traits, then you are most definitely not a candidate for online schooling. I believe that online courses is excellent for the single working mother that is trying to better herself. She does not need a babysitter, and can study in her home or on the go.

    Bravo to online courses!!!

  7. I love online courses!!!! I didn’t think it was for me but the interaction was greater than what I experienced on an actual campus. I attend Chatham University’s College for Professional and Continuing Students. I had one professor to conduct courses on Facebook and let me tell you, that was AMAZING. At first, I was skeptical because of distraction, but I learned alot in that class.

  8. I just recently went back to school and have decided that starting next semester I am taking classes online. I just don’t want to go to the classroom and sit there in the evening for 2 and 3 hours. Congrats and good luck to you.
