It doesn’t matter whether you call it “online learning,” “distance education,” or by some other name, it amounts to the same thing. Taking courses online has been popular for a long time now, and it is becoming more and more popular every single day; and not just for people of college age, either. More and more small business owners are taking courses online. Some of them are even opting for getting their degrees in business management.

Thanks for this; I had never heard of lynda.com but that’s probably because I’m one of those people who does independent research online.
