TIME magazine earlier this month asked: can an online degree really help you get a job? They looked at the different approaches to online education out there, and they honed in on WGU’s industry-focused model as a standout approach that has translated to increased opportunities for graduates.
For busy, working adults, a flexible, competency-based online university like WGU is often the best bet for earning a degree—even, sometimes, for people who work at a traditional university. Chris Dann of Port Orange, Florida, was in just that boat.
Readers of this blog who attend WGU know that, as an online university student, you spend most of your study time on the Internet. And even non-student readers of this blog know that "Internet” and "cute pictures of baby animals” go hand in hand.
