Who Is Number #1 For Online Learning
WorldIQ ranking rankings for online learning programs
The web has invaded pretty much every single aspect of our lives. It’s called “real life” now, and it is no different when it comes to the web’s influence on higher education. It’s interesting to note that one of the very first internet forums was based on the belief that “knowledge is free,” but this notion is now quite different. Information, especially online learning, can come at a very significant price—which a lot of learners need to set aside.
Just like global economic data, this research lists those websites with the most unique and authoritative information about various subjects, including not only course descriptions but also results in terms of student achievement. These rankings have been presented as a possible alternative to private and distance-learning programs which tend to carry a high price tag, or – as the ranking sees it – they create a “fraud” in higher education.
It also puts distance-learning programs at the forefront by recognizing the rankings of universities which are willing to maintain quality, no matter the cost of tuition.
The WorldIQ website only covers online learning but would it be possible to broaden its scope? Having said that, the list includes programs that are based in more traditional educational institutions.
With four million people registering, MOOCs (massive open online courses) have been gathering on the internet for quite some time. Those offered by big universities such as Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Yale, McMaster University, and Cornell even appear in the top global rankings, but can they be expected to keep the same position in terms of quality? It is tough to say, but the WorldIQ ranking lists have come in handy for many college students.
When preparing a wish list, it is worth knowing what the top five websites for online learning offer. To continue the search, you can find a range of resources that help students research other schools and sites that offer excellent options in this field.
