We are older and trying to take a couple of online courses, but knew very little about online education. This site helped to educate us on what to look for. Thank you.

Great online resource for people like me and my daughters who know little about what to look for and ask for when trying to find online higher education courses.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If they could add a section on potential available scholarships or online sites that provide search information for scholarships.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Very Helpful National Directory of Online Education at Community Colleges by Price per Credit, and good online education consumer education on questions to ask before buying online courses or programs.

Unexpectedly, I needed to take some online courses to upgrade my skills for work, and needed to find affordable and transferable online education classes. After trying many sites that claimed to be educational sites but the reality was they were all advertising vehicles for certain online education colleges - this site was finally one that helped me to find the right course at a community college that had online education pricing that was affordable and courses that were transferable. I did not have to pay anything here, and I was not bombarded by emails from online colleges and universities. Good Service, at least for people like me.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Enable me to start enrollment process right from their site into the community college I wanted to enroll with.
