I work with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. Recently I have been working on a program to talk to our community about Financial Aid and Education option for Adult Learners. It seems that as soon as i get to the part about how Online education is an option people immediately cut the conversation short and say "I cant do online stuff" or something to the effect of "Online education is not for me"
Many of these people don't really know what online education is all about or how there are some scholarship opportunities for them. I personally prefer the traditional university setting but i didn't have to worry about paying rent and taking care of a family while i was studying.
I have seen articles and studies that argue both ways but My experience has been that we as a people have a negative outlook on the idea as a whole.
Anyways just wanted to throw it out there.
