This is an excellent question, and I am glad you asked.

Online education is not the same as traditional education. While yes, it is based in advancing student understanding, the processes however are completely different.

With traditional schools, students have a constant schedule. There lives are basically mapped out with classes, places to be, people to study with. With online education degree programs, students are given more flexibility, which can be a good and a bad thing. Good in that you have the ability to adjust your schedule around your personal and professional needs, but bad in that because of this flexibility online education can often times be more laborious.

I am going to suggest that you read these two articles - Six Tips for Making Time and Space to Study in a Busy Household & Get Organized for Back to School: Seven Steps to Success for Online Students.

These are excellent online articles for developing a better understanding of the processes of online higher education.
