How many hours are left in the day after work? Is it enough to go to college? Maybe not if you have to commute, but if it simply meant logging on to your school’s website, you could complete a simple reading assignment in the amount of time to watch a television show. An estimated 6.1 million college students take online courses, according to a report by the Babson Survey Research Center. The flexibility of online education has allowed working individuals to rise ahead, procuring a better position at a current company or even transitioning into a better working environment. Online education has really changed the game for military families and single parents as well. For these students, taking courses over the Internet really saves time and even money.
