Online EdDs and PhDs

By Naturegirl321 @SharonTEFLTips

If you're looking for an online masters degree program, please read this post.
Here are a few programs that offer doctorate degrees that can be earned completely online or only require a few on-campus sessions that are usually held for a couple days during breaks. Some of these universities are B and M (brick and mortar) and others are online schools. Do your research thoroughly before choosing a school. 
Don't just choose a programme based on price! You can get grants for doing a doctorate. Check out profellows for more info. If you're looking for encouragement while drudging through your programme, PhinisheD is a great website with like-minded people. More info can be found at ISR: distance degree programmes. 
Doctoral degrees aren't the end all. Here are some articles against them.
