Traditional classrooms with blackboards or whiteboards and uncomfortable chairs and desks were the norm for many years. Students of all ages and backgrounds can now access education through the internet, software, and electronic devices. Online education has become increasingly relevant and popular and continues to extend its reach with each passing year. Before the coronavirus pandemic, more than 30% of college students took online courses[1]; today, that percentage is much higher. And most colleges and universities offer some form of distance learning, even if they did not do so before. This abundance of courses offers prospective students so many options to choose from and opens the doors to countless possibilities.
