Online Learning - the way to go
The internet is such a commonplace thing now that it seems silly to even write an article on online learning. Simply insert “online learning” in any search engine and you will find more than you can possibly read in any one sitting.
So yes, online learning is the way to go for millions of people. The convenience is probably the highest rated advantage. Imagine sitting at home and taking a course at any time of day, anywhere in the world. No travelling and traffic to contend with, no class schedules to fit your life around, etc. etc.
You can learn just about anything you want on the internet- from hobbies to graduate degrees.
Here is an easy-to-read summary of why so many people are turning to the internet for their education now: “15 reasons why students like online learning”.
