More and more people are attending college and university courses online. The University of Florida is now offering an online program that has attracted 600 students, according to an article by Scott Travis in the February 3 Sun Sentinel.

People are attracted to online education because it is convenient and people can access courses at any time during the day or night.

"I like the idea of being able to go to college where and when I want to," said Lisa Connor.

"I am considering doing an entire degree online because I can work and go to school with no problems," said Brittany Burke.

While online courses still have a ways to go before they are fully a part of everyone's college experience, they are becoming more common. Young people are more comfortable doing business online, playing video games, and now attending college online.
