As universities try to meet the demands of working adults, online education has become more accessible than ever, but many people are still hesitant about learning online. We’re here to bust a few online education myths.
At the University of Denver’s University College, online students are held to the same rigorous standards as on campus students. Online courses are taught by faculty who teach both online and on campus courses.
You Must Be Online at the Same Time Every Day
It’s a common misunderstanding that you must be online at certain times of the day to take online classes. At University College, online classes are asynchronous and give you the flexibility to learn on your time, which means you can log in at any time.
Employers Do Not Take Online Education Seriously
More employers understand that many people are looking online to get an education to fit the needs of their schedule. According to a study done by CNN, 83% of executives said they view online degrees to be as credible as traditional on campus programs.
There Is No Interaction with Your Instructor
While you may not be able to meet with your instructor in person, there are ways to connect outside of course discussions. Have a question? Students can set up a phone call, video chat, or instant message session.
Online Students Don’t Have Access to Resources
Both online and on campus students at University College have access to the world-class resources offered at the University of Denver. From career guidance to research help, there are many resources available.
