Things are changing - rapidly. For example, in the past we were told that information doubled every 10 years; now it doubles every four years. And, in the workplace, the need and competition for more highly skilled ‘knowledge’ workers is increasing. Consequently, more and more adults are pursuing ongoing, continuous and higher education.
In fact, a recent survey predicted that college enrollment will grow 16% over the next ten years; yet, because of limited access to training facilities, faculty and the ever increasing costs of providing instructor-led education, more and more learners are choosing the alternative of online education options.
