        CONVENIENCE!It is not that I like on line better than meeting face to face with professor, it is just so much more convenient to continue my education this way.When classes are only offered in classroom, I can only take 2 or less a semester and work full time. When I can add on line classes it greatly increases my chance of taking more classes and graduating earlier.Thanks
