Students may accelerate their regular academic schedule by incorporating online classes into their degree program. Each class is recorded and stored on a remote server, which allows students to replay difficult sections as many times as needed. If you so choose, online education gives you the opportunity to take difficult courses that won't show up on your transcript. Alternatively, you may be able to complete online credits for a grade. Advanced Placement exams (AP Exams) are offered in a variety of subjects, offering college credit for classes that you've taken. Test yourself with free practice exams, before visiting the official College Board website to register. If you earn a score of 3 or higher on an AP subject exam, you may be granted advanced placement in college.

Graduates with either a bachelors or associates degree typically earn 60% more than employees holding only a high school diploma, adding up to a $750,000 differential in lifetime earnings. If you remain true to your career path and don't wander from job to job, your overall earnings will increase as you gain experience. However, if your focus is more on salary alone, there's a higher risk that you'll encounter early signs of burnout, and be forced to switch careers later on. Technical education programs are a low-cost alternative to attending a regular four-year university, and you can earn good money as a highly-skilled, technical specialist. In order to advance your career, you can take online classes to improve your skills in the workforce. Massive Open Online Courses are known as MOOCs, utilizing cloud-based software, interactive platforms such as Blackboard, and mobile apps.

In the future, an online degree may be just as marketable as a college degree that is earned on campus. A new startup with backing from the founders of Groupon, Udemy online learning platform offers both free and paid courses. Similarly, Khan Academy offers over 4,000 free micro-lectures served through YouTube. Finally, there's Coursera, a competing software platform, with millions of enrolled students from around the world. Recently, a joint venture between Harvard University and MIT announced that their platform (EdX) will be available to students and instructors as open-source software.
