Save Gas, Learn Online

If you could save gas, study during hours that are convenient to you, and boost your career skills -- all at the same time -- would you do it? Well, that is exactly what over one million students did in 2004; and that number is increasing rapidly.

Online Education -- Something Old, Something New

This seemingly new phenomenon is called online education, a type of distance learning that utilizes a computer, a modem and an internet connection as the primary tools to complete undergraduate and graduate coursework at a growing selection of accredited online schools.

Distance learning simply refers to the fact that the student and the teacher are not in the same geographical location. But online learning is not new; it is simply becoming more popular, as career-minded adults and working professionals find less time to enroll in the traditional 'brick and mortar' schools.

Imagine it -- you choose your school and course of study, fill out your application for admission, and receive all of your class materials. But you do it all from the convenience of your computer. You also turn in assignments, take tests and communicate with your professors and fellow students by the same mode. It may sound too good to be true; but career professionals, military personnel, housewives, disabled students, and many others have discovered this ingenuous way to move ahead -- with less pain and lots of gain.

To Degree, or Not to Degree... That is Your Decision

Perhaps you want to increase your income as quickly as possible and need the additional skills that are required for a promotion on your job. Or maybe you are applying for a position that requires a particular certification, but no college degree. Then you should consider enrolling in a professional certificate program. This is also an intelligent choice for those thinking about pursuing a college degree, but who want to get their feet wet in a shorter, college-level program.

You will find a surprising range of professional certificate programs available online -- including accounting & finance, business administration, information systems security, internet & website development, law enforcement skills, health care management, technical writing, crime scene investigation, terrorism and national security management, and paralegal studies. So jump in and choose!

Still Deciding? -- I'll Give You Five
(Reasons To Choose Online Education)

1- You can advance your career and earn more money. The popularity of online education is partially fueled by the numerous employers that have given raises and promotions to employees who have taken online courses to improve their skills. Many of these employers have also provided financial incentives, like tuition reimbursement.

2- You can save travel time. The hours that you would have spent driving to school and parking are now your hours to do with as you wish.

3- You can continue to work your full-time job. It is not necessary to cut your work hours or leave the job early to attend classes.

4- You can decide when and where to study. Mornings, evenings, lunch breaks - all are fair game as you fit study time into your schedule. Even if your job involves travel, you can complete your coursework while you are away from home.

5- You can choose from an abundance of online degree and certificate programs. Whatever your interests, the variety of online schools and classes is impressive. Have fun as you peruse the countless choices at Directory of Schools So, are you ready to begin saving that gas?
