I'm in school for a degree in legal studies. I attend Kaplan U online courses. I find this school to have excelled in online training. I work 10 hrs and commute 4 hrs each day. I usually do reading assignment during my commute. I find the online course to be advantageous as I can fit in the studies at my own time, in my study or bedroom, Starbucks, the library, etc. rather than sit in a classroom.
A typical course consist of a weekly 1 hr oral seminar with the professor, discussion boards with the other students and professor that I must post to at least 4/5 a week. An "open book" test and usually a written assignment. There are tutors available and counselors included in the tutition price. No cost for books which are included in the price as well. Not all online schools are as technology savy as this, so I would check around. I started out with the University of Maryland and they were horrible. They missed it by a mile. It is not about memory, that's old school teaching. It's about learning and knowing where to find something that you don't have the memory for. Besides memory is only good for a day because technology changes so rapidly. Hopefully this helps.
