Campus or Online?
Over the past decade, the status quo of campus-based education has begun to alter substantially. In fact, according to the online research monitor Eduventures, one of ten college or university students enrolled in an online degree program of some type during 2008, and this number is expected to continue to rise well into the next decade.
So how will you know if an online or campus based program is for you? According to WorldWideLearn, an online directory and monitor of both campus-based and online degree programs, there are a few questions one should ask themselves when deciding between an online or campus based degree program for their education:
- Question one deals with campus accessibility. Are you able to get to a campus easily, either because of distance, commute times or previous obligations such as family or work that will not allow you to attend classes at their scheduled time?
- What is your learning style? Do you excel on your own? Do you require a good degree of personal help? Are you better off on your own pace or do you thrive in a group environment? What is your degree goal? Do you want to work in a group environment when you finish? These are all questions important to ask regarding whether you may prefer a class setting or to study on your own.
- What degrees are available online? Unfortunately, this situation may dictate part of your choice for you. Many degrees in scientific fields require labs or other types of courses that must be taken at a campus location. However, many times the majority of the degree can be taken online while the specific campus classes are scheduled when and where possible. This should be looked into when deciding on your degree.
- What are you employment goals? Is this the type of degree that your future employer is looking for? If your employer looks highly on either campus-based or online degrees, you may be able to offer them the type of experience they are looking for. Research into future employment can predict how you’re your chosen degree may affect your job prospects.
