This experience has proven to many non-believers that online school can be just as enriching and fulfilling as traditional in-person approaches. Now, some parents are wondering if they’d like to give eLearning a try when school starts again in the Fall of 2020.
Web-based learning, or eLearning, has been on the rise for a bit now. Adults returning to college to revisit an unfinished degree or polish off a whole new qualification have been enjoying the collegiate brand of online school for years now. In these modern times, homeschooling often means online school, too.
