PhD/EdD by distance learning

Posted By: mcsensei <adtweed@gmail.com>

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with doing a PhD or EdD in TESOL/Applied Linguistics by distance learning. How did you find it? And how well has the degree been received by universities/employers.

Related to the above question, does anyone know of any US universities offering these kinds of doctoral programs by distance? I only know of Anaheim.

Those familiar with Anaheim's MA and EdD in TESOL programs will know that they have some well known scholars, like Rod Ellis and David Nunan, teaching there. But I am concerned about getting a degree from an 'online institution.' In contrast, Aston in the UK and Macquarie in Australia are brick and mortar universities which also offer distance programs, and they also insist that the degree completed via distance is equal to that obtained onsite.

I'd really appreciate any thoughts you can share about the above.

Cheers,
mcsensei
