As Online Education Grows, Does It Really Make More Sense?

Online Education

The pros and cons of educating students online have been debated since the dawn of the Internet. It has proven over recent years to be both successful as well as loaded with major flaws. As more students move online to get their degrees, is the value of the education considered strong enough to take young people from students into the workforce?

As the bedroom turns into the classroom for more students every day, they point to cost savings and convenience as the primary reasons for the shift. Is education being hurt as a result?

This weekend, we will take a look at the pros and cons and try to make sense of the system as it continues to grow, but first let’s look at this graphic by our friends at SiteJabber as they explore the future of online education at the college level. Click to enlarge.
