Discussion on Online Education

One of the main discussions we’ve had at today’s meeting was on online education and how it belongs to the list of formal, non-formal, or informal education. A great discussion on the difference between delivery mode and teaching mode was enlightening on the perspective of learning what and how other countries view education. It has been agreed upon that formal education would be based on government validation and provision of a degree and everything else would fall in the other two categories.

Do you agree?

I ask these questions mainly for two reasons – would the degree’s validity change because of its delivery mode? I don’t think so although others can counter this thinking. I personally think that delivery mode would be chosen by a candidate that would best suit their needs. More and more people are heading towards online MBA education for example. Why? It works within their schedule and provides a way to further one’s expertise in the area of business management.

What do you think?
