Alternatives to traditional, brick-and-mortar institutions of higher learning continue to multiply and present fresh, lower cost college education opportunities for young adults who have identified their plan and are disciplined to follow through.
Entities such as Udacity, CollegePlus, edX, Coursera, Alison, and Pearson have partnered with dozens of major and top-tier universities to offer free MOOCs (massive open online courses). Some MOOC providers even offer certificates to prove to employers the student has successfully completed the coursework.
