Georgia Tech looking to offer online Master's Degree

Recommended Posts

Just curious what others think. Great idea? Terrible idea? ...Personally I love the forward thinking of the idea and of course the price point, but am concerned about the quality. Kids are already coming out of technical schools completely unprepared for IT in the real world.

Its a double edged sword, as you said people don't pay enough attention as is when they are in physical attendance.

 

 

Maybe before you get your diploma/certification you should be required to physically go somewhere and prove that you know what the hell you're talking about before they just hand them out left and right?

To quote the article:

 

"Students on the degree track will have to take tests in person at one of 4,000 proctored testing centers run by Pearson VUE, but most of the students probably will never travel to the campus itself."
