Tempe, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/19/2012 -- According to recent news reports, more and more students are opting to take online courses in order to earn a college degree. Researchers have estimated that within two years, the vast majority of students will take at least some of their classes online.
The reasons for this surge in popularity in online universities are numerous: for example, many students are working and need to fit their studies into already-busy schedules. Some have family commitments during the day and can only attend college at night and on weekends, and others have limited transportation options. Still others wish to take online courses because the advances in computer technology have made it easy to get a fantastic education from a variety of online universities.
Trying to select which online program to attend, however, can be a time-consuming task that traditionally requires multiple phone calls or visits to a variety of universities. Even then, prospective students might be unsure which online degrees and schools are the best and offer accredited programs that will give them the type of education they are looking for.
