Discover the Weekly Number of Hours Online Students Study - Joe Chapman, US News

Year after year, one of the most common pieces of feedback I receive from students who are new to our online degree program is that they are surprised by the amount of time it takes to succeed in their online courses. Common misconceptions of online degree programs are that they are easy to complete or take less time than traditional college classes. However, I'm here to tell you that is not the case. Though Arizona State University's online programs, called ASU Online, our undergrad and graduate courses are structured in seven and a half week sessions rather than 14-week semesters. For one session, a student should expect to spend six hours a week on course work for every course credit. http://www.usnews.com/education/online-learning-lessons/2015/10/02/discover-the-weekly-number-of-hours-online-students-study
