Build-it-Yourself vs. Working With Noodle Do you want to build and manage your online program on your own? It might make sense to do so; there have been some notable successes with programs built in-house. Southern New Hampshire University, for example, has more than 30,000 students in its home-grown online programs. But the overwhelming majority of in-house efforts are small in scale and mediocre in quality. Talk to us about why you think you want to build a program yourself; we may surprise you and agree that you should.
