The Internet has revolutionized many parts of our economy. You can swim, meet people online, and now you can go to university courses. Five schools affect "distance learning" like no other in front of them. Let's take a look at the online education providers offered by these leading schools.
The Phoenix University was one of the accredited universities to have bachelor's degree programs over the internet. The University was founded in 1976 by launching online training programs in 1989. The program grew to such an extent that 150,000 students graduate in Bachelor's, Master's and PhD programs at a given time. Technology, business, education, nursing and management programs are being offered, and the University of Phoenix has now become the largest private university in the United States.
DeVry University offers business and technology degrees at university and postgraduate level. In addition, the school offers graduate level certification programs. At the Illinois Center, the school allows students to graduate online, at a local university, or both. In fact, universities can be found in 21 states and Canada.
The roots of Westwood College in Denver, Colorado, where he was founded in 1953 at Denver Institute of Technology. Fifteen Universities in California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, and Texas, the physical campus opens the school for students around the world.
Kaplan University is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Washington Post Company, a publisher of leading national newspapers, The Washington Post. Kaplan's offer includes degrees in arts and sciences, business, criminal justice, education, technology and design, nursing and health care, paralegal studies and financial engineering. The school offers student degrees at the Associates, Bachelors and Masters levels as well as certificates for certain programs.
Founded in 1970 in Naples, Florida, in a couple who wanted to offer adult education to obtain doctoral degrees Walden University developed into a major online university offering graduate degrees for Bachelor, Masters and Doctoral students . Now, the Minneapolis-based university has five different schools: the School of Education, the School of Management, the School of Health and Human Services, the Psychology School and the NTU Technical and Applied Science School.
Online education is not for everyone and therefore allows students of the first three universities to study at the University while the last two are strictly Internet-based. However, all five schools are recommended to students that traditional programs do not have: the opportunity to graduate at a student's pace and to a place that is appealing to many. Undoubtedly, online education has become a viable solution for students from all over the world.
