Online Learning is More Demanding

In this article, Roxana Popescu, writes about the advantages of online learning

Demanding schedules, constraints of geography and transportation, competing priorities and reluctance to interrupt a career are the primary motivators for enrolling in online programs.

and quotes George Lorenzo, author of the “Complete Idiot’s Guide to Getting Your MBA Online, to explain how online courses are more demandig

“It is my belief that online is harder, because you have to write a lot more,” Lorenzo said. “You have to partake in discussion boards, and you have to contribute significant postings as part of the grade, typically. It’s not as spontaneous as in a classroom. You’re going to think about what you’re going to write.”
