When you see the rapid increase in any particular field at the same time you will find a high level of fraud in the same field and finally people start blaming even those who are doing a legal job. Similar is the case with online education. You will find attractive headings like non Fake College Degree from leading universities but many of them do provide you fake degrees.
This creates a negative effect for those leading online universities those are authentic and do provide you non fake college degrees but you start considering all of such universities as scam and generalize the whole thing as one instead of clarifying the issue with some deep research. This is reason many people abandon education due to lack of research.
Moreover, it is the responsibility of people who are aware of the authentic online education providers to promote them and make them reach as many people as possible. This will make online education more popular among people and as a result education will gain ground in our society.
