Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) October 12, 2008 — As Internet users become more savvy and social media sites dominate, colleges are taking a second look at the structure of online courses.
Just two years ago the typical online degree course involved mostly reading assignments. Students were able to interact with each other through discussion posts and chat rooms, but now that is all changing.
Several colleges offering online coursework are now incorporating the assets of social media into their platforms. Widgets, interactive programs, and digital media are helping engage students with different learning styles and allowing them to network with other students and instructors.
