An October 7 Boston Globe story on online education cites both UWW faculty member Karen Stevens, EdD and UWW student Joe Garland who is finishing his bachelor's degree with a focus in American Political Advocacy and has been accepted into the Masters of Public Policy program at UMass Amherst.
In the article, Joe talks about how his courses involve a lot of reading and writing and a lot more screen time than he expected. His advise to those just starting off with online education? Start small. “Take a bite that you know you can chew, even if that means taking just one course to start. Get a successful semester under your belt.”
Is online education right for you? Here are some question to consider before choosing online courses.
