'Why Online Learning is More Valuable Than Traditional College'
on November 18, 2013
Distance learning -- especially given the advances of high definition video conferencing --
has long been touted as a way to augment conventional educational techniques.
Increasingly, though, it’s worth considering whether it might even be a valuable substitute
for a traditional college degree.
Consider the skyrocketing costs of college tuition. For the
last 30 years it had been taken for granted that you got a college degree to earn more money
throughout your career. Now, however, the student debt problem has escalated dramatically
in America. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York reports $902 billion in outstanding
nationwide student loan debt, while the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau estimates the
figure at $1 trillion.
