In Response To: PhD/EdD by distance learning (mcsensei)

You can get as much from a distance degree as you can from attending classes, even more in fact, depending on how much you put into it. Whether or not any given school is willing to recognize that fact is another matter. That has to do with pay it seems mostly. It might be a good idea to have one. However, I am not sure of the value of having one if all your students want to do is sit and jabber in Arabic all day. If it qualifies you to teach in a real school with genuine students, it could be helpful. I studied for a long time into all aspects of TEFL. I don't see the use in the knowledge, except that should you get into a conversation with someone knowledgeable in the subject, you will be able to talk on an intelligent level. That has not happened yet.
