Is this the future of college: Online classes, but no degree - Associated Press

With college costs rising steadily and with more courses available online for free, some observers are beginning to question the need for a traditional college education that may include lectures on Greek philosophy but burden graduates with massive student loans. Education startups are offering alternatives — from boot camps, to one or two-year tracks, to accredited degree programs — and their founders say these options will give students a more relevant education in today's job market, and at a lower price. But some experts caution against betting on a narrow, practical education geared toward a specific field that is in demand today but could leave them unprepared for the jobs of tomorrow. They also say most applicants still need a college degree from an established institution to get a good job. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/04/30/is-this-future-college-online-classes-but-no-degree.html
