Thinking about earning your computer degree online?

Thinking about earning your computer degree online? Here's a few
things that you should know.
Online distance education is one of the fastest growing markets in
the education field. Online computer degrees offer you
unparalleled flexibility and convenience, usually at a great price.
But before you sign that check for your tuition fees, you need to
make sure that the programme- and the college- is right for you.
Remember, just because a school or university has an .edu domain,
does not mean that it is a reputable college.
When choosing the online school that offers online computer
degrees, you should try to get as much information about the
institution as possible. Where is it accredited and by whom?
There are numerous resources available online that will help you in
verifying a school's credentials.
What is the average class size? Some online courses have large
numbers of students enrolled, thus making it difficult for the
instructor to effectively communicate with their students. Are the
instructors experienced in the field and do they have experience
teaching online? Being a great instructor in the classroom does not
mean that he or she will be able to successfully make the transition
to the virtual campus. Try to contact former students and ask them
questions about their experiences. Many alumnae are happy to
talk about their time at college or while studying and this will give
you some more information about pursuing your computer degree
from an online college.
Another tactic that you can employ to find out about online
computer degrees is to contact the Better Business Bureau to see if
anyone has registered a complaint against the college or institute.
Likewise, you should also contact the appropriate licensing board
to verify that their diploma or degree will be recognised.
Choosing an online college for your computer degree is a very
important step in your professional career and is one that shouldn't
be taken lightly. With a little due diligence and some common
sense, you'll quickly find the computer program that is just right for
