Students may accelerate their regular academic schedule by incorporating online classes into their degree program. Distance education allows those students who can't make the commute to campus to take accredited courses in their major. If you so choose, online education gives you the opportunity to take difficult courses that won't show up on your transcript. Alternatively, you may be able to complete online credits for a grade. Advanced Placement exams (AP Exams) are offered in a variety of subjects, offering college credit for classes that you've taken. Test yourself with free practice exams, before visiting the official College Board website to register. If you earn a score of 3 or higher on an AP subject exam, you may be granted advanced placement in college.

Certificate Courses Online

Western Illinois University self-directed study
There are almost 7,500 accredited schools in the United States, which collectively enroll 15 million students, and award over three million bachelors and associates degrees every year. If you remain true to your career path and don't wander from job to job, your overall earnings will increase as you gain experience. However, if your focus is more on salary alone, there's a higher risk that you'll encounter early signs of burnout, and be forced to switch careers later on. Technical education programs are a low-cost alternative to attending a regular four-year university, and you can earn good money as a highly-skilled, technical specialist. If you're currently employed, you can take online courses in your free time to advance your career. Massive Open Online Courses are known as MOOCs, utilizing cloud-based software, interactive platforms such as Blackboard, and mobile apps.

In the future, an online degree may be just as marketable as a college degree that is earned on campus. A new startup with backing from the founders of Groupon, Udemy online learning platform offers both free and paid courses. Similarly, Khan Academy offers over 4,000 free micro-lectures served through YouTube. Finally, there's Coursera, a competing software platform, with millions of enrolled students from around the world. Recently, a joint venture between Harvard University and MIT announced that their platform (EdX) will be available to students and instructors as open-source software.
