Online education 101

What to know before you enroll

More and more people are utilizing online education as a way to advance their academic backgrounds and careers. The Internet is particularly useful for working people with long hours and family obligations, those who can't deal with rigid course schedules at universities and colleges. The good news is that first-class institutions such as Stanford University and Harvard University promote many course offerings.

There is a downside to pursing online education, however. Finding the right class can be a monumental research task. The term "online education" is used to describe everything from semester-long seminars to 20-minute tutorials. Read the Wall Street Journal for some tips on choosing courses that are right for you.
