The students that take their courses this way get the same diploma as those that attend 180 days.
    That's exactly the problem. People taking the coles notes version in their pyjamas get the same degree as people actually experiencing an education.

    50% of an education is learning the discipline to attend classes, to engage other students, engaging the prof and TAs, dealing with groups and difficult partners. There are organic components that cannot be reproduced.

    I've taken online university undergrad courses online, I took a post-grad certificate online, and working for the gubment I have ENDLESS online training. Both government and private designed courses. Universally they've been scams.

    When I'm in a class I have to demonstrate my understanding and learning to people's face. You've got no choice, you don't know something you sit there in a group looking like a fool getting the stink eye from the others.

    Online learning? Looks like this:

    According to Harvard Business definitions, BATNA theory of business negotiation stands for

    A) Best Alternative to a Negotiated Agreement

    B) Best Alternate Trade Association Practice.

    C) Best Negotiation Standard

    D) Bunnies Are The Nicest Actors.

    Oh yes, the multiple guess tests. However, that is true of the brick and mortar schools, too. Our schools really only teach two subjects, math and reading comprehension. It will call a section history but if they give you a paragraph about George Washington then ask four multiple choice questions about the paragraph, it's not history.

    You should be thankful for the knowledge you get from me.
