Share Article

Insiders – both students and faculty – have been telling us through the Get Educated site what they like and dislike about online education in general and specific online colleges. Our ratings are designed to share this critical crowd-sourced data with consumers.

Best Online College Reviews

College reviews logged on the GetEducated.com site by October 15 will be included in first ranking lists of the best online colleges in America on the dimensions of student satisfaction and public reputation.

Geteducated.com, America’s premier ranking guide to online colleges, has released a preliminary analysis of the top problems plaguing online learning degree programs according to a very credible source: online students themselves. Top complaints include:

#1 Disengaged instructors
#2 Poor customer service
#3 Group assignments
#4 Poor quality control
#5 Poor course design

“Reading the news in 2012 one could conclude that online colleges will be the ruination of higher education,” says Vicky Phillips, who founded Get Educated in 1989 to help consumers make informed choices about online degrees. “But an analysis of the reviews left on the Get Educated site by real online students and teachers – those who work and study inside the online learning sector – shows an overall positive opinion of the online college experience.”

Get Educated, which has been collecting evaluative online college reviews from students, faculty, and the general public since 2009, will publish student satisfaction and public reputation ranking lists based off of these reviews this fall. The lists will spotlight the best accredited online degree programs in America.

“Insiders – both students and faculty – have been telling us through the Get Educated site that not all online colleges are alike. Our ratings are designed to share this critical crowd-sourced data with consumers,” says Phillips.

According to data crowd-sourced at Get Educated, the University System of Georgia Web MBA has the happiest online MBA students on planet earth. To date, 46 verified online MBA students have awarded the Georgia distance MBA a collective “A” for quality curriculum, instruction, and student advising.

Other online degree programs aren’t fairing as well.
