This certainly is not the way Grandma used to do it.

Taking classes over the internet with no face-to-face interaction is great way of learning. Computers have definitely revolutionized the way that college students of today learn.

With distance learning there is no longer the need to travel to get to class. This allows working students, and stay-at-home mothers the opportunity to complete a degree without drastically altering their schedules.

Some may take distance learning for credit, to learn a new skill or just for the simple enjoyment of learning. For whatever reason, the internet and distance learning has completely changed the learning process. Traditional universities are now offering distance learning courses along with the traditional lecture classes. New universities have been established that specialize mainly in distance learning. Some well established places, such as BarnesandNoble.com offer free classes (part of the class requirement is the purchase of a book).

As a special warning, if the classes will be taken for credit make sure that the institution is regionally accredited just as any traditional university should be regionally accredited.
