LUBBOCK, Texas -

You don't have to live in Lubbock to be a red raider, in this digital era earning that bachelors or masters degree from Texas Tech is a few clicks away. Texas Tech reports a 74% surge in online-only undergrad students and a 47% increase in graduate students since the 2013 school year.

"We've changed the approach to teaching online it's not just an online correspondence course, but there is a lot of interaction with the course so students feel like they are getting a quality education," said Melanie Hart, vice provost of eLearning & Academic Partnerships. "We've been doing some more marketing to let students know that you don't have to go to one of the for profit schools that you can actually come to Texas Tech and get a high quality program all delivered online."

Timothy Howard is one of the 3500 online registered students at Texas Tech, he's working on a masters degree in strategic communication and innovation and said he was a little uncertain at first he wasn't sure if online programs were for him. 

"The experience has been really wonderful the professors are only a phone call or email away any time I need them," said Howard. "The course content is really informative and really rich and I feel like I am learning a lot."

Texas Tech started it's distance learning online programs about 20 years ago and currently has eight regional sites and more than 80 fully online degree programs with several online formats, for more details about the eLearning & Academic Partnerships visit the following link: http://www.depts.ttu.edu/elearning/
