Evaluating an Online Program -- 5 Important Questions

1) How is the Course Presented?

There are many ways that an instructor can lecture: online as text, with accompanying slides, with or without student interaction, video or audio, etc. Since content is more easily understood if it's presented in a dynamic and engaging manner that involves an interaction between the students, the instructor, and the material, you should make sure that your online school utilizes multiple methods for conveying information. Also look into whether or not exams are given and how assignments are turned in; the format of the course can be just as important as the content.
