Write a paper to consider and document your personal decision process and the criteria to: (a) pursue an advanced degree at an online institution rather than a traditional face-to-face institution; and (b) pursue this degree online at Northcentral University over other universities.
Compare your decision making process with peer-reviewed research on the topic of why students choose online over traditional learning. Consider the following:
- Do you match the profile?
- Why or why not?
- What was the same?
- What was different?
Develop a short one-page introduction to online learning for others that:
- Explains the expectations, the joys, the issues, and any attributes online learners need.
- Uses peer-reviewed research to support your claims.
- What should they consider?
- What lessons have you learned?
