"Right now, 5 million people in the U.S. are hooked into distance learning, and the numbers are growing at a mind-boggling rate. Why? Because taking classes off campus is the way to earn a degree or a certificate or continuing ed credits from a "name" institution while keeping a job and/or a busy life intact. The leading edge in education, it's no longer a "mail-order degree" but a high-quality opportunity to advance or begin your career." "Intrigued? Open up this book and read on! Virtual College tells you what you need to know to make your decision, choose a good program, and get a handle on the skills and equipment necessary to succeed." "Must you have a VCR? a computer? a fax? What kind of credits/degrees can you get? Can you transfer credits already earned? How much does it cost? Can you apply any time of the year; how? Will you learn as much as you would in a traditional school? How will it look on a resume? What is it like taking classes without really "being there?"" "Virtual College gives you quick answers to these and dozens of other top questions about the fastest-growing way to learn today."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
