Online education is rising in popularity, especially among working adults who desire flexibility to complete coursework outside the boundaries of a physical campus.
A report last year by the Babson Survey Research Group revealed that the number of U.S. college and graduate students enrolled in at least one online course rose by 3.9 percent between fall 2013 and 2014. Career aspirations are the primary reason to pursue an online degree, according to separate survey data released by Aslanian Market Research and the Learning House.
