Some students join online courses for fun, R U one of them?
I asked my friend who works for an online college. Why online
degrees are becoming popular, even the best Institutions have
started offering online education in the last few years. His
answer was shocking and I could not believe what he said. He
replied, "People love Internet and that's why they spend a lot
of time searching, reading, listening, chatting or writing on
it. To make excuses to themselves or to their social
surroundings they want to cement their newfound friendship with
Most students are still skeptical about online degrees but it
gives them an excuse to be online whenever they want. If you
hear the questions they ask you will be surprised. Most of them
are just worried about spending money and ask again and again,
"is it worth it" in different ways.
The result is they want to be online; they want everyone else to
believe that they are doing something important and not just
wasting time on it. That's why they take admission but instead
of working hard and finishing course quickly, they are taking
much longer then necessary.
It is acceptable anyway, because it makes them happy, the best
thing is, they don't have to finish the course in a set period
of time, in most cases. To tell you the truth they do not expect
a lot at the end from an online degree. For some strange reasons
they are sure that they will get a degree anyway, which might
not be the case for some students. First and foremost in their
mind is the fact that they are doing something important in the
eyes of others. If they actually understand the importance and
worth of online degree they would be shocked with stunning
clarity. They will work so hard that they will start to loose
hair and leave everything else for the sake of their degree.
They start the course with enthusiasm and promises but after few
weeks when the going gets though the promises evaporate. They
feel that they are stuck and continue with their other online
activities and do not even log in for weeks. The knowledge that
they do not have to finish the course in a set time-period is
doing all the damage. Soon it will change, it has to, and
students will be required to finish the online degrees within a
set period of time".
His answer was really surprising for me and I left him with a
regret that I shouldn't have asked him that question. There are
so many different Universities and colleges and you can find out
more on http://www.friends4study.com For some strange reasons I
feel that he was telling me the truth about most students. I
hope you don't mind me asking, are you one of them?
