Because of tremendous progress of personal computing and Internet technologies that have been done during recent decades it becomes nowadays easier than ever to enroll to some accredited online bachelor degree program in order to graduate with a bachelor degree in the field of study chosen by a student. The number of accredited online colleges that make accredited online degrees available to all those willing to study is constantly growing.
It is no wonder that this kind of education is gaining more and more popularity - the reason is its low requirements on equipment and premises: actually, what you need to obtain an accredited online bachelor degree is a personal computer, elementary PC user skills, a reliable and fast enough Internet connection, probably a web camera, and a headset with a mike. Of course, besides such hardware requirements a student should provide some discipline, well-structured share of spare time during the daily life, and produce some funds for the instruction.
The online education is incredibly flexible and provides several options for willing students to choose from (mainly that depends on what online college the student is going to enroll). The student can choose from a completely online course consisting of a combination of e-mail, Web browsing, forum interaction, online quizzes and tests, and multimedia presentations or a combination of online work and student's personal presence at classroom meetings and instructions.
It should be noted that nowadays even the most respectable colleges offer online classes, including complete online bachelor degree programs. That means that though these programs were once considered as inferior by some employers and elite educational institutions, by present day this condescending and biased attitude has changed completely towards recognition and respect. The proof to that is the fact that the most successful people in society more and more often give preference to online courses to continue their education, since the pressures of their careers and family life leave no spare time for them to go through the traditional full-time campus routine.
No other mode of traditional educational program is in position to rival the fantastic flexibility of accredited online bachelor degree programs. They are simply beyond the competition. The duration of studies completely depends on your preferences, so you can study at the pace you feel is suitable and affordable to you. For instance, most of these accredited online bachelor degree programs will offer a student as long as up to eight or even twelve years to graduate with your degree. So a student is free to schedule the classes according to the availability of the free time, when a student actually feels it really makes sense to schedule. The flexibility of the online programs makes it possible for students to get breaks in their work schedule or between jobs for five or six months. During this period of time many of them devote three-five times more efforts to their class load - because the programs are so flexible! On the other hand, if a student can spare more time and energy and is enough devoted and hardworking it is quite possible to graduate with online degree in as little as 18 months. Offline study programs cannot boast anything even close to this flexibility of classes scheduling. You have to be either a part-time student or full-time student, but in any case you have to observe permanently defined amount or range of units during each term, and the duration of a term is permanently set, as well as the schedule of class meeting and studies. In case you are in need of certain, even miniscule deviation to the permanently eastablished program, you should every time obtain a special permission from the dean or academic board. That is the way how it goes with traditional offline degree programs.
Actually it is not the question of the educational mode, whether it is traditional offline one or a modern online one. The key factor in this question is the reputation of the school you attend. The more reputable is the standing of the college or university the better future employability you are getting. Nowadays many of most reputable universities even do not make any difference between the educational modes in which your degree was obtained, they just state the fact that your degree was appropriately obtained by you according to their requirement for graduation with a degree.
Obviously, the biggest benefit of online education is its easy and stress-free nature. You do not have to split between your family and work obligations and demands of traditional educational mode. But there are some other advantages that sometimes are not so obvious. If you are taking a course at online educational establishment any short-term disruption of your attendance (caused by some health problems, for instance, or family difficulties or a need to work overtime) lasting less than two weeks may not even require that your online school or professors know anything ever happened. It will not damage your academic record at all. Such freedom and flexibility are outright impossible for an offline university!
