The History and Future of Distance Education

Standard

I’m a firm believer in education. Especially today when there are fewer jobs, and a tech skills shortage.  I consider myself to be a lifelong learner. The stats and figures and future predictions below make an information junkie like me very happy. Since education affects us all, from a student perspective, an educator, an employer, a job seeker, I thought I’d share this great infographic curated from an “innovator in lowering education costs via eLearning” – StraighterLine.com

However the available online free or fee based courses can differ widely so I wanted to include a guide for everyone to do their own research before settling on any one school for training themselves.  Here’s a link to help start your research:
