Online Degree Reviews – Unbiased Online Degree Review. ‘Steve Rawlinson, a software and web developer from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada created www.OnlineDegreeReviews.org in his spare time in response to the lack of information about online degree programs available on the Internet. The website officially launched on Tuesday, July 25, 2006. OnlineDegreeReviews.org gives the ability to current and former students to post reviews of online education programs, and rate the program based on several criteria, including the professors, educational materials, use of technology, and overall value.
Current and former students to online education now have a place to offer their knowledge of online degree programs to potential students. OnlineDegreeReviews.org allows the user to easily add to its ever-growing list of colleges and programs. The biggest challenge will be to receive contributions from students and have them write a review, but as the website states “How valuable would a review of your program have been to you before you enrolled? What costly mistakes might you have avoided?”
