Online Courses in the Age of High Gas Prices

Gas prices are up. Most sec­tors of the econ­o­my are down (see this WSJ bit) as a con­se­quence. The excep­tions? Appar­ent­ly hybrid cars and online cours­es, accord­ing to this piece in The Chron­i­cle of High­er Edu­ca­tion. Feel­ing the pinch, stu­dents are skip­ping the dri­ve to cam­pus and tak­ing cours­es online. The net result: many schools are see­ing enroll­ments in online cours­es increas­ing 25% over last year.

And, yes, we feel your pain. So feel free to fill your iPod (or oth­er MP3 play­ers) with our col­lec­tion of free edu­ca­tion­al resources. Lots of val­ue here:
