Have you checked out what’s going on with remote learning lately? Some think they don’t have the time or money for school. But, online universities can be a time- and cost-effective way to get the education one needs.

Virtual classrooms aren’t a new thing, but their growing programs, opportunities and supporters are. Even taking a few online courses in college was a nice break from the usual commute, cost and demands of the classroom. And technology has only improved. Now students can attend online lectures, study groups you name it, and never have to leave home.

Of course, good time management is a must and deadlines must be met for assignments and exams. But there is more freedom to learn at one’s own pace and go to class when it fits the schedule.

Whether one is looking to earn a certificate or degree, there are numerous universities and programs out there to choose from. And most online universities offer scholarship programs and financial aid to help you with tuition too – check their website.

Curious about whether course-specific content and apps — or a financial aid finder — might be a good project for you? Learn more about the top online schools and find out if a university is accredited, here.
