Today’s tech-savvy students are showing a greater interest in online courses. As a result, the number of students enrolled in online courses continues to rise. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the Babson Survey Research Group about online learning,

More than one in four students (28%) now take at least one distance education course (a total of 5,828,826 students, a year‐to‐year increase of 217,275). A year‐to‐year 3.9% increase in the number of distance education students, up from the 3.7% rate recorded last year.

Why are online courses so popular?

Well, anyone who has ever taken a distant learning course can attest to the ease and flexibility that such programs offer. You could take the course in the comfort of your own home whenever you want. Along with that, the day to day distractions that are often so common in a traditional classroom setting can be eliminated by taking an online course. Online educators bring real value to students of all nationality, age, background, and learning needs. In addition, online learning provides teachers and tutors with various opportunities to work with students from different grade levels and you earn extra money while you do it.
