SJSU’s completely online program makes it possible for so many students to get their degrees as they work, care for families and squeeze in time for friends and even laundry. I know I’m grateful that the commute to class means shuffling down the hall to my computer rather than gathering in a chilly lecture hall.
Some students find even more reasons to like the iSchool’s online program, because the format meets their unique learning needs. Deaf or Hard of Hearing students Danica Rice and Melissa Schack Rupp find an online program much better for learning in a world without sound. For some Deaf students, having to negotiate class schedules as well as how to get their lectures can be really stressful. An online program that’s well equipped with a variety of technology options for getting lectures and course materials makes it easier.
