University online

I saw a tv program the other day about on-line Universities and i found it really interesting .Going to make a web search on the subject soon, but i thought someone here might know anything about it .
My country (Cabo-Verde islands West Africa) spends huge amount of money every year sending students abroad because there is no University . Online education seems to be a very promising and economic solution . I would apreciate any comment on the subject .

Actually i want to make a course on linux server management ( to enable me becoming a linux net manager , to know the main management tools and to be abble to to install and configure a net ) (don't know if i translate it correctly) it's not that expensive (about US$150 and 32 hours long) considering other courses they have . hey guys can you say something please , i don't know if i can make it because i think i don't have the skills to it . I bought this book about six months ago (complete guide to linux from Peter Norton and Arthur Griffith) and read very little of it because it is mainly about server configuration and i think it would be a good a great help now .

this is what in my understanding would be the online education ( can you comment , please ?)

computer 1--|
computer 2--| |--------------- online lessons (given by a distant teacher)
computer 3--| |
computer 4--|------server------------- research data on the web (using google or other)
computer 5--| |
computer 6--| |--------------- (just normal use) writing text , printing , sending emails, etc
computer n--|

I was really hopping someone`s comment on the subject .I need a starting point here , see , i don`t actually know anything about it and ... well what the hell , people more interested on threads like ``how do you spell Linux ?`` . the server course begins on the 13th . Can you tell me at least if it`s worthwhile , or if it`s just another money sucker . thanks a lot

Hey, I don't know what to tell you, and I guess most ppl here neither. One thing though, I took an online courses in my University, it was fun ,fortunately nothing profession related just bull crap, like computer ethics and world religions( I might be flamed for it, but I am an atheist, so well ...), had to write essays every week and e-mail them to professors, and I hadn't written any - got B's for both of them

Well being in the military u have no choice but to do online classes due to work restrictions. Online universities lets u be able to take classes at ur own pace at ur own time. I am currently taking online classes at City University ( majoring in Computer Science and Information Tech w/ emphasis in C & C++ programming.)
The thing is if u don't know what the hell ur doing it's not gonna help you...I have a sister-n-law who never took programming; but decided to take a class at Univ. of Maryland online. You might as well of gave me the A cuz I did all the homework. So if u never had the class ur better off atleast takin' the intro course in a classroom setting....then take the rest online.
