Why Study Online at Post

While the convenience and freedom of learning online appeals to a wide variety of first-time  students and working professionals alike, you may be wondering about the difference in quality of education as compared to a traditional, on-campus university experience. Will learning online be as effective as learning face-to-face? Will you be motivated to learn independently without having  to attend class in person? 

At Post, we take all these into consideration when we develop our online degree programs, and we’re always finding new ways to improve. We don’t just want our online programs to be comparable to our on-campus programs. We want to use all the latest technologies and techniques to our advantage so we can give you a totally unique learning experience that will help you get ahead in your career and ensure lifelong learning success. 

With us, studying online is not just reading text on a screen. It’s a completely new way to learn.

Keeping You Motivated

You’ll have no class times or strict login times, but you’re still held accountable with your highly involved professors and classmates. Courses emphasize group discussion, and your professors offer you feedback on your work and performance in real time. That’s the benefit of our highly interactive learning environment: you’ll be motivated to learn independently and stay engaged in the process, even if you’re not learning in person.

Online Versus On Campus

Numerous studies have proven that distance learners perform as well or better than their on-campus counterparts. The No Significant Difference Phenomenon (2001, IDECC, fifth edition), by Thomas L. Russell, cites 355 research reports, papers, and summaries dating back to 1928 that found no significant difference between distance learning and in-class learning. In fact, where a difference was identified, it generally favored the distance-learning student.
