Online Masters Degree

March 21, 2008

I am applying for a masters of education degree in Curriculum, Technology and Education Reform at the University of Illinois.  Aside from one meeting on campus the entire program is on-line.  I’ve taken classes on-line before and they have been great.  I’m looking forward to the program and I know that it will benefit me professionally and educationally. 

 I am a little worried that there is still a stigma attached to on-line degrees.  I don’t know for sure but I’m concerned that many people view on-line classes and on-line degrees as a “cop-out” or an easy way to a degree.  What is the perception right now?
