More students turning to online courses for post-high school education“It’s that ability to do class to do work at 3 o'clock in the morning in your pajamas because that’s the only time you’ve got," TJC Director of Distant Education Ken Craver said. "“Mainly, you can explain it in one word: It’s flexibility. People that really gravitate to online learning are busy people.” There are classes that cater to your passion, whether it be nursing, education or paralegal studies. Research conducted by the Babson Survey Research Group states more than one-in-four students in the United States are enrolled in online learning. They also found the number of students studying on a campus has dropped by over 1 million between 2012 and 2016.
