    Because of my comments on the Thomas Edison State College (TESC) thread, I've been inundated with requests for information on how to do a portfolio at TESC. Since there appears to be wide interest in this area, I've decided to save time by responding here. The requests for information are typified by the following two examples of e-mail I've received in the past few days (with some background facts changed to protect the innocent):

    Distance learning is the most convenient way for adults with busy lives that include full time jobs and family responsibilities to obtain a quality education. While these days, the most common form of distance-based coursework is online delivery, there are also programs delivering education through correspondence, television, and mixed delivery methods, providing options for everyone.

    Adults are earning Bachelor's degrees, Master's degrees, and doctorates online in every field through accredited colleges and universities. Distance learning students are self-motivated and independent learners. They are willing and able to take responsibility for their learning and can accept a learning environment in which the instructor is a facilitator of knowledge application rather than a dispenser of information. Adult students take with them into each course vast and varied experiences and knowledge upon which further knowledge is built.

    By now, nearly everyone has heard about distance or online education (sometimes referred to simply as "DL". While it's been around for more than a hundred years, the explosion in interest has occurred only in the last 5 or 10 years.

    Here are some common questions we hear at DegreeInfo.com:

    1) What does "distance learning" mean, anyway?
    2) Are DL degrees legitimate?
    3) Are the degrees earned through DL respected by employers and other learning institutions?
    4) Who gets DL degrees? (And why?)
    5) Will I have to start from scratch, or can I get credit for classes I've already taken, and work or
    life experience?

    In this article, we'll do our best to answer these questions and more. And if you can't find what you are looking for, try visiting our discussion forum, where our members and contributors discuss and debate a wide variety of Distance Learning issues. Or check out our free Quick Degree Finder to help you find the perfect school.

    What does 'better' mean in this context ? Cost is not an issue for you as you have mention, are you looking for a college with a 'better' branding ?

    No, the undergraduate degrees are not accredited. SMC makes it clear in their FAQ:

    Perhaps you're right and ESL is an exception. I will check with the career counselor at my little college and find out what ESL credential is most accepted.
