Aumentan los programas que otorgan grados en línea

Degree.com es una página web que se enfoca en programas que ofrecen grados en línea y aprendizaje a distancia. Han reportado un aumento de visitas de 38 % en el periodo de abril-mayo en comparación con los meses de febrero a marzo. Al hacer una encuesta informal las razones más sobresalientes para ello son
"the #1 reason for being interested in an online degree was “higher gas prices,” cited by 60 percent of those responding in May 2008. Other reasons given were convenience, parking, scheduling, babysitting and the cost of classes "
Gas is costing people upwards of $1000 a month,” says Sheila Danzig, who runs the Degree.com site. “And students are the last group who can afford that. Taking classes at home and other distance learning options allow students to avoid spending limited funds on gas and to have more time for a part-time job that helps pay the tuition bill. For the adult learner, online degree programs provide a perfect answer to a scarcity of time and resources, particularly for those who also work and have a family.
