Is An Online Degree Right For Me?

Since the first online colleges came onto the scene in the mid-1990s, millions of students have enrolled in online degree programs. In fact, the 2010 Sloan Survey of Online Learning by the Babson Survey Research Group reports that in the fall of 2009, 5.6 million students were enrolled in at least one online course.

But just because online degrees are popular, doesn’t mean they are the perfect fit for anyone and everyone. Research into online learning is ever-evolving, but certain factors and characteristics of successful online students have emerged over time. We’ve designed a self-assessment quiz to help you find out how you compare to these characteristics, and if you may be a good “fit” for online degree programs.
