The question of which teaching methodology is better, traditional or virtual, is always a puzzling one.

The goal isn’t to sell you on completely replacing traditional classrooms. We’re not there yet. Instead, it’s to help you make informed decisions on how virtual classrooms offer a creative adjunct to distance and traditional programs.
