Quite simply, University and college education is still too expensive and unapproachable for the majority of Americans.
Although we believe in the value of higher education and the institutions of learning in our country, normal distractions of work, bills, home life, etc. often prevent someone from being able to dedicate the appropriate time and money to a traditional 4-year degree program.
We want to help make those institutions more affordable and accessible to the millions of people unable to take the first step with full-time education.
Our goal is to help everyone begin their education in a simple and easy-to-use environment. Anyone can take award-winning online classes at their own pace and within the confines of their existing busy schedule... Free. Completed classes can then be transferred as earned credits to the university of their choice.
At OnlineDegree.com we're going to provide detailed information about all of the available degrees being offered by accredited universities throughout the country.
Our free research tools will help people decide on the career pathway of their choice, the necessary degree, and the best university to reach their goals. Whether someone is seeking a Bachelors Degree in Business, an Associates Degree in Philosophy, or a Master's in Fine Arts, we'll provide comprehensive tools and information to guide them there.
Distance education has enabled millions of people to obtain a degree who may not have otherwise been able. The emergence of technology has inaugurated a fantastic period in educational history that allows for multimedia and immersive learning from a computer screen anywhere in the world. Although not appropriate for every degree, on-demand distance learning is a sufficient, if not better, medium for the majority of growing degrees and technical skills required for the 21st century.
Our modern economy is changing at an accelerated pace. Never before in human history has the marketplace requirements been more demanding than they are today. Technology is changing our world rapidly, and jobs will be required to keep up with that change. Unfortunately, we as a society have not been able to adequately address the large re-educational burden that must take place for all Americans to remain competitive in today and tomorrow’s market. The Online Degree Project will work to provide that technical education to everyone across the country and help them get the modern training and skills they need.
