I will have to disagree with you on your view of offline education been cheaper than online education. There are lots of sites out there that provide free courses. Few even offer certificates upon completion. Examples are Saylor.org, Futurelearn.com, Coursera, Duolingo and Worldenglishinstitute. So what are you saying? The advantage with this is the 100% flexibility. With a very small fee, I can earn a degree in UoPeople.
