Finish your degree online - DAVID McCURRY, Greenville Online

In South Carolina there are now more options for completing an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Our regional colleges and universities have expanded evening, weekend and online offerings for students who do not fit the definition of the “traditional” 18-year-old high school graduate. Online courses – when designed well and taught by instructors and professors trained in effective methods for this type of learning – are a good alternative to traditional types of education. Many professors have reported, for example, that students’ participation in discussions increase in their online courses compared to their traditional classrooms. Some students, who may be reluctant to speak out in class, find their voice in writing and make their thoughts known in online discussions. More faculty have embraced this “virtual” classroom and excel at providing rich learning experiences for their students. http://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/opinion/contributors/2016/07/17/commentary-finish-your-degree-online/87027526/
