Online education – Boon or bane?

One of the biggest discussions that are going on right now is whether an online education is a boon or a bane? Internet has made it possible for universities and other educational institutions to reach out to students across the globe and offer them education through the online medium. The educational institutions have also taken advantage of this new technology.

We see the incorporation of this idea in the number of advertisements on institutions offering online education that are being listed in most websites. Many institutions also directly approach people and talk about courses being offered. It is this sudden sprouting of opportunities that has made some people a little suspicious, thus sparking the debate in the first place – is online education a boon or a bane?

To be fair to those who argue that an online education is more trouble than it is worth, there is a certain factor of risk attached while opting for an online education. In most cases, there is no clarity on the institute offering these degrees. We do not clearly know if the institute is recognized, whether their degrees have real value or whether the qualification is really worth it. There is also the usual fear attached with such situations, that these degrees are only merely money spinning rackets and may not give any valuable returns.

As these fears and doubts are quite valid in their own place, it becomes important to be absolutely sure of the institute and the degree before signing up for it. One way to do this is to check for certifications and accreditations. If the university or the educational institute has been certified by reputed bodies, then they can be trusted. Another way to check for the value of the degree is to check out the testimonies given by former students of the institute. Usually the institute or university will have these details listed on their websites and their printed brochures and their prospectuses.

Jaro Education is one such educational institution that offers international MBA degrees through online education in collaboration with the internationally acclaimed United Business Institutes (UBI) of Belgium. In addition to having been certified by ISO, Jaro Education has also been certified by relevant bodies across the world that encompass leading certifying authorities across the US, Europe and Australia.
