I was talking to a friend of mine last night about taking classes online. It was kind of funny, because he's in the military and I'm a bohemian writer type, but online learning fits really well into our totally different lives.
He was telling me about this really cool thing called the Martinsburg Institute. They have a bunch of different programs specifically intended for military personnel. They can all be done online from wherever in the world you happen to be, even if you don't always have internet access. It's all designed to provide the support and flexibility that members of the military and their families need to be successful. (If you've ever been in the military or you know someone who has, you can imagine how challenging it can be to work on your education at the same time.)
My friend is still thinking about which program to go with, but he's leaning towards a degree or certificate in something business-related because he thinks that will be the most helpful as far as his post-military career. I'm happy to have a friend to compare online learning notes with, and I'm really happy that he's got a program like the Martinsburg Institute that fits his unique situation so well so that he can continue his education. Now, I need to get back to work because if he ends up getting better grades than me I'm going to look like a slacker.
