At ASU, online programs do not launch until they meet the same high standards held in traditional classroom settings. According to Philip Regier, executive vice provost and dean of ASU Online and Extended Campus, not only is the curriculum equally challenging, but the outcomes of online education for graduates can be equally rewarding.
To substantiate his points, Regier discusses a range of topics tied to experiential learning and the benefits of online education in a short Q&A. Here are the main takeaways:
- Online courses can require more discipline than on-campus courses
- Employers increasingly seek online degree options to support the workforce
- Research finds classroom interaction can increase in online settings
- Diverse practicum experiences prepare students beyond simple instruction
- Graduate programs online continue to increase in number and subject matter due to demand
