The internet has broken through many of societies barriers. People who could not afford to travel the world can now see it live on their computer monitors. Libraries that only the wealthy could travel to around the world, are at the fingertips of many who are in poverty. And many who could not have afforded to travel to distant colleges can now attend them online.
Getting a higher education online has made it possible for many people who would not have been able to attend otherwise. Due to financial restrictions, many people would either choose not to go to college at all, or they would attend a local community college. Many students who were in this situation had to settle with getting a degree in a field that they did not want to simply because they could not afford to travel to and attend the college that offered what they really wanted.
Internet technology has made it possible to be in the backwoods of the Ozark mountains enjoying a seminar on creating art in Paris. This modern age can connect students with teachers all over the world, that specialize in their degree interest. There has never been a better time for educational opportunity than there is now.
Financial aid as well as grants and scholarships are available to those who need them. No longer is education just for the wealthy and well off. Anyone who really thirsts for knowledge can quench it through a few simple keystrokes online. There is no time like now to get your higher education.
