Top 5 Reasons to Enroll in Online Classes

placeit

Online education has come a long way these past few years, showing the world how it has been able to raise itself to the challenge. Here’s a question for you, students from all over the world: why would you enroll in online classes? Based on Horizons University’s own students’ feedback and informal exchanges, we’ve come up with 5 top reasons:

1 – Flexibility 

Online learning platforms make it a breeze to take online classes: with a simple click of the mouse, students have access to their student page and the courses they are enrolled in, anytime, anywhere. This means that they can enjoy greater flexibility, away from commuting hours, attendance hours and fixed schedules. They can set their own study plan and pace to share with their facilitator and fit it to their lifestyle. At Horizons University, we accept applications all year-round and students can start any course on the day of their choice and set their own pace!

2 – Cost-effectiveness

At a time when tuition fees are soaring, convenience seems to be one of the top reasons for students to look for new, affordable study options. Horizons University online course fees are clearly stated on the institution’s official Internet site. Students attending online classes will cut down transportation, babysitting, gas costs. In addition, most of our online classes do not require physical textbooks: readily available e-resources can be found within each course or via our partnerships with e-libraries and other digital publishers.

3 – One-to-one experience

Students are tired of being just another number, pushed from one reception desk to another… They appreciate receiving the full attention they deserve throughout their administrative tasks and studies. At Horizons University, for every course you take you will be assigned to an expert Faculty member, who will guide you through the course, help you deepen your knowledge, and give you a personalized and tailored one-to-one learning experience. Our Faculty members come from all over the world, bringing their international experience to you!

In addition, once you enroll you will be assigned a Student Premier who will accompany you, support you, and be in close contact with you throughout your degree to answer any questions you may have about your orientation, course structure, schedule…

 4 – Ease-of-use

What do you need to study online? A computer and an Internet connection. Period. You may connect from anywhere, anytime and since our approach is content-based, you may access your course content 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our introduction courses are designed to guide students through the step-by-step procedures applicable to our platform and webmail. Easy peasy.

5 – Quality

To ensure the recognition of Horizons University degrees around the world, we are constantly pursuing accreditation and re-accreditation. Now Horizons University holds ASIC, ECBE, and ACBSP accreditation, and this is only just the beginning!

We feel that quality in education should not be a privilege, but a right. We have designed our degrees from the bottom up so that we can offer them to YOU at an affordable price.

The Value of An Online Degree

Found this interesting article by Karen Schweitzer from About.com…

Many people consider getting an online degree, but worry that they will have a hard time getting hired after graduation. But, these worries may not be necessary. Online degrees are increasing in popularity and are thought to be more valuable than ever before.

An Online Business Degree vs. a Traditional Business Degree
Many different colleges, universities, and business schools offer student the opportunity to get the same business education online that they would inside a traditional classroom. Often times, the degrees that are rewarded are not even noted as online or on-campus, because they are the same degree.

What Type of Value is Place on an Online Business Degree?
The big question is what type of value is placed on an online business degree? There’s no exact answer to this. Just like with most questions, it depends on whom you ask. However, according to a recent survey by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC), more than 70 percent of corporate supervisors rated the value of a distance or online degree as “just as valuable” or “more valuable” than traditional degrees in the same field.

The important thing to remember when getting an online business degree, is that the degree is only as good as the school that it came from. Make sure that you choose a school that is accredited.

Horizons University, offers high quality, online (or on campus) degrees.  Our online programs are one of the most flexible programs available.  And yes… we are accredited!   We are accredited by ECBE (European Council for Business Education)… Additionally, we are a candidate for ACBSP (Acceditation Council for Business Schools and Programs).
