Respondents shared their experiences by rating the institutions regarding criteria including: organization and accessibility, support and service, cost of program, perceived organizational reputation, expected success, and practical relevance of contents. Respondents also indicated how satisfied they were with the organization and to what extent they would recommend it to others. 

“From full university degree programs to professional development courses to classes for hobbyists or those just wanting to learn something new, the range of education available online is enormous. The choices can be daunting,” said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek. “If you are looking for quality online education, we hope you will find our listings helpful.”
