  • (1888PressRelease) October 23, 2010 - The 2010 edition of the Best Worst In Online Degree Programs named the University of Maryland University College, among the top ten online universities in the world. The free eBook is the oldest grader of online schools and traditional venues offering online programs. It is the fourth time in the past eight years the university has measured up to being among the best among over 300 rated and ranked institutions worldwide.

    Currently, the University College offers almost 800 distinct courses online and more than 100 college programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and certificate training levels. The elite rating firmly establishes the University College of the University of Maryland in the forefront of advanced online learning. It has been a pioneer, according to Dr. Fred DiUlus, the research author.

    Since the beginning of the trend to online learning in the 90's, DiUlus points out that equally prestigious schools pulled out of online education development after abortive experiments to try it. More than one, he says, claimed that online education was more about process than content. Believing it, they systematically withdrew and dropped their early programs. Maryland's University College however stuck it out and its students and school are reaping the benefits of it today.

    According to Dr. DiUlus, who is also the CEO and Founder of the publisher Global Academy Online, Inc., "The University of Maryland's vision has continuously contributed to it's growth and sustainability over the years as one of the premier providers of online higher education." It has become, he notes, one of the models the early detractors of online education are now scrambling to emulate.

    The Best Worst Online Degree Programs is the oldest and most comprehensive global ratings service of online programs. It measures value of both traditional and purely online universities. It is available free to the public from several Internet resources.
