Check it out. 72% of profs who teach online (and these are volunteers) think their students don't deserve the credit: http://techcrunch.com/2013/03/22/72...ses-dont-think-their-students-deserve-credit/ Have you taken online courses? If so, what did you think? I took some online seminary courses. I would imagine that grad courses online are closer to the campus thing, since they involve a lot more outside reading and more writing. So I can see how undergrad courses might be lacking. But even so, I treasure the personal, in person contact between the prof and the student, and that is somewhat lacking in online education. I'm still friends with two of my seminary profs from 1976!
