The top 50 list, put out by College Consensus, considers factors like online-degree offerings, user friendliness of learning platforms and flexibility for students. College Consensus researched 1,000 top community colleges that offer many fully online degree and certificate programs that have eased the lives of thousands of students.
Here’s a look at the Mediasite schools that made the list:

College Consensus noted Tri-C’s flexible program that lets students “continue working and living their busy lives” while taking classes. The college has always been ahead of the curve with its online program, greatly attributed to its impressive faculty training initiatives.
