Doctorate or Second Masters Degree?
I am a teacher and I have a Master's in Psychology. I am considering going back to school (online) and I am considering a Master's in Museum Studies from Harvard through their extension program. I am also considering a Doctorate in Education at a Canadian school. The masters programs and doctorates I am looking at will cost about the same. I hope to advance my career in education. Does anyone have an opinion on this?

Taking an online course...Athabasca or Thompson Rivers

So I need to re-do my Advanced Accounting course, so I have decided to re-take it online. My two options are Athabasca or TRU (Thompson Rivers). 

Has anybody taken online courses at any of these two universities before? If so, what was your experience, good or bad? Insights, if possible? 

Thank You.
