Some folks wonder why they have to pay full tuition for online courses. In their minds, online learning should be cheaper because they equate online with correspondence courses; after all, you’re not sitting in a classroom. Many think online means lower quality because they’ve seen diploma mill advertisements promising a degree that is “only a click away.” Prestige and quality mean ivy-covered walls, not a desktop in the den. There is no doubt that a lot of people are still wary about online education.
As online learning becomes more popular and commonplace, the pros will eventually outweigh the cons. Research indicates that online learning is, in many ways, better than face-to-face.
