As a high school student, one of the tougher decisions that comes across your plate is answering the question “What are you doing after graduation”? For many years, the question could be answered with one of two responses – either “I’m going to college” or “I’m going to work”.
Now, there’s another option in the mix, and not just for students coming out of high school. Online learning is the fastest growing form of education today. We hear a lot about online college courses, MOOCs, and traditional universities offering courses online for a variety of subjects and types of students. Some require you to enroll in a degree program, others don’t even offer course credit. Learners from around the world have access to the same material and teachers.
