What are your thoughts on Master's degrees completed online in comparison to those completed at a university campus? Does industry/academia tend to look down upon online degrees, or could they not care less, as long as the degree wasn't from a diploma mill? Do you think online education will become more commonplace as universities continue to experiment with online programs? I looked for threads on this topic, but most of them are outdated. Personally, if I were working with someone with a Master's degree, I wouldn't care if the degree was online or not. I would be more interested in their research/work experience and personal projects. To me, those are a better indicator of what someone knows, and whether or not hey have a drive to learn new things. However, I also see certain fields as being better-suited for online degrees. Experimental sciences and engineering-related fields would have difficulty offering online students opportunities for conducting physical research. Remotely conducted mathematically or computationally-oriented research might be more feasible, although student interaction might still be difficult.
