The US news recently published a list of top ranked institutes that offer top-class online bachelor’s degree programs. Out of 961 institutions, that responded to the survey invites, only 194 of them, offered online learning programs. Rankings were given on the basis of student engagement and assessment, student services and technology and faculty credentials and training. A certain list of information was requested to be furnished by the institutes where some of the major questions asked were regarding the interaction level, length of the program and if at least 80% of the content was accessible to the students enrolling for a course.

The standards for the study varied on the basis on which the institutes were ranked. Tools like weekly office hours, instructor response timings and student login track records kept by the faculty was used to rank the colleges that served best student engagement and assessment facilities. While career placement, smartphone apps and the likes were used as standards to rank institutes on the basis of student services and technology, faculty credentials and training rankings were based invariably on experience in online teaching, requirement of online teaching training and training finances.
