The 2018 Edition
has been successfully published annually since 2003. Starting with the rating and ranking of the 20 known online colleges
and universities, the sum total of the number of schools offering online delivery of college degree programs has ballooned
to over 3000 globally - many in the last two years alone. This edition rates and ranks the top 20 in the world and 500
of the most seasoned providers that have a track record of offering online degree programs.
An individual college or university ranking does not dwell
on the fluctuating up and down ratings of individual programs that can be affected by faculty movement, the schools concentration
on the specialty and whims of the administration to capitalize on the latest trends to recruit students. Rather, the BEST and
BEST and WORST ONLINE SCHOOLS concentrates heavily on the overall performance of the university as an online program
provider. If, it is argued, if they are indeed considered among the best overall providers of online education in the world
regardless of the division, genre or specialty concentration, then such a college or university is indeed among the elite
providers whose overall online degree programs regardless of the discipline will always and most certainly be considered for
generations among the leaders and providers of online higher education.
The mix of online schools has grown over the years to hundreds and now
thousands of schools are jumping on the bandwagon that many of them criticized not more than a decade ago as an inept, useless
and a less than worthy way to study and acquire degrees - nNot so anymore as more schools, in record numbers, are being
added for evaluation every day.
The Best and Worst...is
the oldest and considered by students, the most fair and unbiased rating of schools with complete online degree
programs. Thus, examination of the traditional school offering online programs and the purely online universities
are measured equally.
