Have you ever thought about finally getting enrolled in university and earning a degree, but reality just keeps getting in the way?
It seems as though there is only a limited timeframe for most of us in the way we live our lives. We graduate from high school, then go to university, get a job, get married, raise a family, retire, then die. If you miss any of those steps, the rest starts to build up and it seems as though the opportunity is gone forever (except the last one of course, that's one no one gets to skip).
With the Internet Age and Global internet access, anyone who did not complete a step in life at the time they were "supposed" to can now go back and realize that dream of being a high powered chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney in California or learn to trade commodity funds from their yacht on the French Riviera. Today, almost all universities in every province offer some sort of program that allows a person to complete their degree online.
The great thing about earning a university diploma or degree online is that you don't have to be in proximity to any one degree in order to get it. For example, online distance learning could allow a person in British Columbia to enroll in the Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Toronto, complete all the course work and tests, and graduate without ever having to rent a Toronto apartment. For that matter, access to online education allows students anywhere in the world to do the same thing, when while they're still working during the day, maybe doing manual labour with a pin mixer.
Online education is not just for those looking to finish a degree, either. There are plenty of reasons for people to enrol in a course. You might just be interested in philosophers, for example, or you may want to see just how you would do in a single university course. Many people take programs such as English as a Second Language, or the course that certifies one to teach ESL, through online learning.
Online university education is a great option for a lot of people looking to access upper education, for a lot of different reasons. The most compelling one is often the matter of accessibility; it's just easier to take a course online and work at your own pace.
