Online CS masters for H1B / GC?

Moving initially to the US on a TN visa. I am Chinese born and hope to get a Green card asap. I am considering doing an online masters to increase my chances at drawing an H1B and eventually EB-2 green card.

Is it worth it? Realistically I won't qualify for the Masters cap until the 2022 h1b drawing at the earliest. Also, what are the easiest and fastest online cs masters I can do? I hear Georgia Tech is quite intensive. I am doing this purely for immigration and don't really care about education quality or prestige.

    Not worth the money, time and effort. Rather find a job that sponsors h1 and get into next year's lottery

      I would be entering the lottery anyways. It would just be for future lotteries if I don't get picked

      Probably a faster way is to marry a citizen

    You don’t need H1B to get a GC. You can go straight from TN to GC like I did.
    However you may need that MS to qualify for EB2. Or lots of YOE if you just have a BS. Your other challenge is the waiting queue for the Chinese born applicants. If EB2 and EB3 have a similar waiting time for the Chinese, then there’s no point in getting a MS degree.
