I was wondering if anyone had any advice regarding online degrees for web development. I'm currently looking into schools and was looking for some advice. I can only do online courses, I have 2 kids and a full time job.

I took a few courses from Sessions.edu, they were pretty good. And not to overly priced plus you can work at your own pace.

I'm getting into web design/development and just started classes at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh online. So far it has been a good experience for me and would recommend it to others. They helped out with financial aid and other options. I'm a mother or two and need to be able to stay home with my kids while going to school. Hope this helps :-)

Not speaking from experience, but the standard advice usually given here by people who actually hire web developers is: start working on your portfolio. That's the single thing that will most interest employers.

If taking courses is the best way for you to learn what you need to learn, that's a good option for you. If you prefer on the job learning, you can look for a non-profit or something you can volunteer at and learn that way. In either case, you'll want to keep a nice record of your work and have as much of the good stuff online as possible (and as little of the bad stuff!)

I actually got a recommendation from an employer in the business to learn Computer Science, not just web stuff.

I'm looking into Devry right now, that was also a recommendation.
