The typical university classroom of 2010 has just gotten a makeover, and it may look familiar. In fact, it bears an uncanny resemblance to your home office, living room or local library.

The virtual classroom is fast becoming a way for eager students to obtain an undergraduate degree, a master’s degree or even a doctorate, and local colleges are beginning to offer online-only degrees, in part to compete with online-only schools like the University of Phoenix. UMassOnline, which is based in Shrewsbury and oversees online programming at each of the University of Massachusetts’ five campuses, and Assumption College in Worcester, are two of the local pioneers in fully online degree programs.
