The Misleading Nature of Online Universities

Though it seems like a while ago that watched the PBS documentary about online education, the issues involved with online education are still very prevalent. This article provides further proof that many online universities are misleading in their marketing campaigns. ITT claims in its commercials that its students are able to obtain good jobs when they graduate. However, that is largely a false claim, and many students either end up dropping out or having to pay huge amounts of loans when they graduate. This begs the question: will more online universities be punished for deceiving students?
