The trend to attend college specifically to get better jobs will continue. Online education has grown significantly, but to compete with all the schools that exist in the industry, online education programs will need to continue to evolve.  Online schools need to offer programs that prepare students for careers, but online schools also need take what they already do well and incorporate some of the advantages of traditional on-ground education offerings. This evolution will help students and families to wisely choose a major or degree path and will better prepare students with the necessary skills to efficiently compete in all aspects of the job market.
