With more than 4 million students enrolled in online schools and universities (a number that’s estimated to increase by as much as 30% each year), there’s no denying the popularity of Internet-based training. Whether you’re working on a master’s degree or updating your WHMIS training, online learning is a great alternative to traditional classroom training and workplace seminars.
