U.S. News & World Report states, "The vast majority of students enrolled in these
ranked programs have earned at least some college credit. They are more likely to be
working professionals in their 20s to 40s looking to advance in or change their
careers than be first-time college students.  U.S. News & World Report chose factors
that weigh how these programs are being delivered and their effectiveness at
awarding affordable degrees in a reasonable amount of time."

development of all online courses that results in engaging and collaborative online
