Online courses have become more popular in recent years. Thanks to the growth of the high-speed Web and streaming technologies, among other advancements, nearly half of college students now take at least one course online.

To say that the Internet has revolutionized the way that people connect, communicate and do business on a global scale would be putting it lightly - the movement is still gaining momentum as more people plug into the Web via a range of personal devices every day. But the functionality of this worldwide phenomenon doesn't stop there.
