My sister started back to school four years ago and does nothing but distance learning, mostly online internet classes through Howard Community College (Howard County Maryland)and the University of Maryland who were pioneers in distance learning. She is almost finished getting her BS. Last winter semester she earned 30 college credits in 15 weeks doing one of those courses where you document everything you have learned in your life. It was intense but 30 credits in one semester is a great accomplishment and brought her that much closer to her degree. She has not set foot inside a college classroom in years. I on the other hand enjoy and have time for the classroom experience. I think there is something out there for each of us.
