On-Line Education

I have started a degree program online at American Public University. I first heard about APU when my then-husband was in the Army, and we talked about taking classes at AMU--American Military University.

There seems to be a lot of discussion about on-line learning lately.  I was skeptical, myself.  

A couple of years ago I took a few classes at Phoenix for an add-on to my teaching credential, and it was academically vigorous in the extreme!  I worked very hard for my grades, and learned a great deal.

I like APU a lot as well, and plan to continue for my Master's.  I was uncomfortable being "just" a Civil War buff.  Now I can be an educated Civil War buff!

Any thoughts?


  1. There seems to be a growing movement toward radically overhauling America's (dysfunctional?)higher education system, online education being the centerpiece. A blog I follow, Walter Russell Mead's VIA MEADIA, often has posts on the subject and often links to other websites dealing with the issue. I am very interested in anything you can tell us about your experience. Good luck!

  2. I thoroughly enjoy reading this post. It’s awesome dear. Thanks for sharing it.
