Before I decide which university that I would apply, I talk to a few of my friend who are already studying there. Getting the inside picture of the university, how the courses are being taught and whether they have cool professors around. Hehehe.
If you are wondering how an Online University is like, check out capella university latest Inside Online Education podcast. It features a conversation with Capella PhD student Carla Chladek about her work as Program Manager for the Joint Staff Training Program at the Pentagon.
These regular podcasts feature interviews with Capella students, faculty and staff who share the experience of online education from a first-person point of view. They are typically about 15 minutes long and are available through the Capella University Web site at capella.edu or capellacommons.com.
