In Response To: Re: Masters in TESOL? (nomad soul)

I disagree that an online masters is looked at differently from an on-campus one. Except where there is a teaching practicum involved (which in the case of online courses, usually means attending the campus for a 'block' of time), the learning is the same;
Some people prefer to be on campus with scheduled lectures and access to lecturers and library, and others prefer to work from home and manage their own time.
On campus has lectures and library, online has video clips of the lecturer, skype and lots of PDF-ed readings.
On campus has seminars, online has secure forums (open for a set number of days and with a 'minimum contribution required'), through Blackboard or Moodle, etc.

I know of lots, and have studied on several, courses where the qualification is exactly the same whether done online or on campus an the actual parchment at the end, received at graduation, does NOT distinguish between the two.
