Online learning continues to grow in popularity with both students and colleges. Well-recognized traditional universities are offering more online degrees every term, which further legitimizes online learning and degree completion. The days of skepticism about online education are ending.
The demand for online degrees is high, and the reasons are obvious. The classes are flexible, allowing you to learn on your own schedule and at your own pace. This can be a matter of necessity rather than convenience for many people, who have busy lives and many commitments (family, job, etc.). But flexibility appeals to most of us regardless of whether it is necessary. Also, your online learning experience may be more user-friendly that contentional instruction – leading online programs have well-designed productions that flow more like TV shows than lectures.
Clearly, high demand for online learning opportunities means many schools want a piece of the action.
