Does Online Education Pass Or Fail?

from the the-difference-between-calling-and-visiting-your-mom dept

A good article looking at whether or not online education systems pass or fail. The critics find that many online education programs are frauds. Even the ones that are legit, don’t necessarily give you the best education. They’re certainly missing the human touch. As one critic says, “It’s the difference between just calling your mother on the phone and going to visit her.” But, for some people, it’s a very useful way to get an education that they wouldn’t be able to get otherwise.
