We’re all used to commercials that advertise the ease and convenience of their online college — and that’s understandable, as nearly two-thirds of online students say they chose that option to be able to study and work on their own schedule — but what if you just want to learn more about a personal interest of yours? What if you just really love the civil war and want to learn more about it, regardless of your career choice? Thanks to recent studies on learning that show the effectiveness of visual information over text (our brains process images 60,000 times faster than words!) and advancements in technology, there are now entire courses you can take online. These home study courses make studying not feel like studying.
