While there are very few fully online universities (though there are some), many students these days have experiences at traditional universities that are fully online. This often includes the full range of student services expected of a university: tutoring services, a library, career counseling, office hours, and student clubs, all online! Furthermore, online delivery offers enhanced flexibility. For our purposes, "online universities" are universities that offer the full range of online support services as well as degrees at the graduate and undergraduate level that are fully online.
Perhaps no other subset of students lend themselves quite so well to online learning as students in technology fields. Many of these students will go on to spend a great deal of time on computers or related information technology, and are likely already greatly at home on computers. Unsurprisingly, many technology degree programs were also early adopters of online education, allowing for years of experience to be culimated into online pedagogy and delivery methods.

Health Care DegreesPrograms Rankings
Widespread adoption of online education methods for health care fields is relatively new. With that said, there are few fields that can benefit as much from the additional flexibility of online education as health care providers. Particularly for those already working in health care who might want to return for a more advanced degree, there are many flexibile online degree options to choose from. We've started our coverage of online health care degree programs with the most popular health care degrees: RN to BSN programs, Masters of Science in Nursing Programs, and Health Care Administration.
Education degrees have long been central to the online education landscape. With years of experience, many online education degree programs have honed their ability to fit into busy educators lives. Education is also one of the largest types of careers in which many professionals obtain advanced degrees, leading to a wide range of degree programs. We've already highlighted many of the most common online education degree types, and will add to our catolog in the future. Check out our online education degree rankings to the right!

Business DegreesPrograms Rankings
Business degrees were some of the very first to find mainstream adoption in distance education. Back in the day many MBA programs were offered via cassettes, VHS, or corrospondence. As soon as the internet became a viable option for delivering online business education, programs were early adopters. And as with most educational disciplines, the more time they've spent focusing on distance education, the more they've been able to refine their processes and provide quality, flexible, and affordable online degree options.
At Online Course Report we do more than cover degrees by tackling the breadth of online education opportunities. Many of these opportunities involve open education, or are centered around the acquisition of particular skills rather than degrees. To the right we've highlighted a number of our other rankings and review content on online education opportunities.
