    Usually when you get an online degree (from an accredited institution), they dont put “online Degree” on the diploma, they are usually the sxact same degree you would get if you went into the classrooms.

    Just make sure that the online program that you choose is accredited, you dont want to spend all that money and get a piece of paper that isnt worth anything. BE CAREFUL..

    Good Luck.

    I think it depends on what part of the country you are trying to become employed in. Down south sure, but up north I do not think so.

    I know what I am talking about my husband is a teacher. We moved from the north to the south for work. In Michigan it would be very hard for you to get a job, when there are two hundred applicants who went to better schools than you. It matters were you went to school up there.

    As long as the source of the online education is known to be reputable, and when the potential employer interviews you, it is clear that you know your stuff, I can’t see any reason why you wouldn’t get your shot at handling the job, whatever it might be.

    On line educational degrees are becoming more and more the excepted way to go in an ever busier society, and may be the ONLY way if you need to work.

    If you’re currently a teacher (or even if you’re not), make sure it is from an accredited university!! What you need to worry about is not whether it will look as good, but whether it will even COUNT! No sense investing time and money for something worthless in terms of your certification and contract.

    As someone who teaches college both online and on-campus, I can tell you that there is a difference in the perception of a fully online degree vs. one where there is some classroom instruction.

    A Masters is higher level education, and even if you get your degree from a reputable school, it’s still better to have one that wasn’t earned totally online.

    Why? Simply because as an online instructor, I cannot say for sure that YOU did the work and really know your stuff. For all I know, you could have had someone sitting next to you feeding you answers and doing your work. In class, I can see, hear, and actually tell you know things well enough.

    And on the Masters level, that goes a long way!
