We put a lot of time and effort into ranking online schools based on their technological savvy. We hope you find this useful as you select the school you will be working with.
A Quick Introduction
If you are visiting Online School Center for the first time, you may feel overwhelmed. So below we’re going to walk you through the most important parts of our website.
Choosing An Online School
Probably the most important decision you’ll make is which school to enroll at. The good news is that the quality of online schools continues to improve so you are less likely to end up at a bad one. The bad news is that there are still some bad online schools out there. We’re here to help you cut through all the noise and find a good school that meets your needs.
Our online school rankings page includes a number of useful school rankings to help you pick the best of the best, whether by degree program or just overall. For example, if you’re looking for the most technologically savvy online school, we’ve got a ranking for that. Or if you want to know which schools have the best bachelors in graphic design programs, we’ve got a different ranking for that. Our ever expanding list of rankings articles forms the core of our site.
Choosing A Career
We also have a career section to our site. Most people go to college to advance their career. The career you pick depends on a lot of different things. Some people are interested in the highest paying job. Others might be more interested in quality of life. Our resources will help you choose the career that best fits your priorities.
Beyond rankings, Online Schools Center is building other useful resources like Online Courses on various topics related to being an online student. Our first course is designed to help you study. Check back as we develop our online course offerings.
Online Schools Center also provides you with informative tools and guides that can contribute to your success in pursuing your online degree. For example, The Diploma Dilemma gives an easy-to-read insight into the ups and downs of college life, whether it be online or traditional studies, and provides valuable information on how to stay focused and not become a statistic. In addition, we take all of the guess work out of financial aid with our Financial Aid and Online Education infographic.
