Search for accredited online degree & diploma

Why we need Online Colleges and Universities

Bricks and mortar colleges and universities versus online colleges and universities

My country used to have very good and well ranked University and Colleges (bricks and mortar). Unfortunately, because of some flawed policies like the shift away from English as the medium of instruction and especially the affirmative programs, none of my country's universities was ranked in the first 200 of all the universities of the world. My nieces and nephew were separated from their parents at a tender age and went for matriculation and tertiary education overseas. If the parents wanted their children to be at home, they should look for good online accredited college or university.

Working people plus those living in remote areas

Some people may have to hold a job prematurely for survival or to support aged parents of younger siblings. Such people may still harbor ambitions of getting a diploma or degree. Some people may be living in remote areas and not keen to relocate. For these groups of people, good accredited colleges or universities will suit them fine.

What is educational accreditation?

Products, facilities and services including education can vary widely. Consumers and users of various facilities and services obviously will want an authoritative organization to rank them and give an accredited status to those which passed the litmus tests. This is quality control. In the case of educational accreditation, the services (teaching) and facilities (infrastructure) and product (diploma or degree) are assessed and those diplomas and degrees that made the grade are given accredited status.

Employers when hiring often have the results as indicated in the diplomas and degrees of candidates perhaps supplemented by face-to-face interviews. Most employers will give preference to candidates with diplomas or degrees that are accredited.

Searching for online courses, diplomas or degrees

Online colleges and universities offering all sorts of courses have mushroomed and one can't be blamed if one gets bewildered by the huge choices. This online education website says they have 524 Online Training and Certification, a huge selection. But fret not for they have a search box which in addition to the normal search, also have an advanced search. See screen shot below:
