Blogging World I Need Your Help

     I have always said that I have wanted to get my masters in education, but life happens and I have enjoyed watching my own kiddos grow.  That is my son with me and my daughter(too cool to be with mom). 
     I know this is kind of an unusual post but I need some advice.  I am looking at an online university, because that will allow me the chance to do my homework after I've had family time at home.  Also all of the graduate schools around me are about 50 miles away and being a single mom with two kiddos that is just not an option right now.   Has anyone taken an online course?  Did you like it?  Do you think it's a good idea?  Any advice or comments would be helpful.  Thanks in advance.

I did and I loved it! For me it worked because I could sit down after work and focus on it. You have to be dedicated to it. Every week I had assignments and had to stay on top of it, but that's my style too.

I am taking the last class in my degree and they have all been online at www.nsula.edu

I have enjoyed it. Most of my classes had really flexible teachers. It's been a lot of work (since there is no in-class time, it seems that there is a lot of work required at home), but it was the right choice for me.

I took many online classes as I was working towards my Bachelor's so that I could get finished faster. I LOVED it! It was more work but I actually felt like I learned more. I have looked into getting my masters this way but its just not the right time for me. Good luck! :)

I graduated with my Master's in Literacy degree last December from Nova Southeastern University - I took everything completely online....and LOVED it! I would not go back and change anything. I could get my work done with a cup of coffee and my PJs on every Sunday and work things around my time. I know other friends who go to work, go to class, and then still have to come home and do homework. I just went to my computer and did the work. :)

I think as long as you get the degree go for it. I did some of my MA classes online but had to go in for the process portion of the capstone. Do it! Time will go by either way:)
