Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen says that half of American colleges will be bankrupt in 10 to 15 years because low-cost online education will effectively undermine the business models of traditional institutions and run them out of business.
Online education also has the power to dramatically improve the lives of working Americans who have some college experience but have not completed their degrees. According to most recent data from the U.S. Census, 128,345 Americans fit this description and by finishing their degrees online, they could significantly increase their earning potentials and even increase their life expectancies.
U.S. News & World Report assessed nearly 1,500 distance education programs in order to calculate which online programs are the best. U.S. News considered student engagement, student services and technology and faculty credentials in order to form their list.
