Adapting to change isn't everyone's strong suit but it is critical for survival in the modern world. The reason so many people still believe in college is that their minds can't fathom that it might not be a viable and efficient model anymore.
College was once the only game in town so you had no other choice but to go. In this day and age a new player has emerged that has leveled the playing field...the internet. Think about it, you're literally on the internet right now soaking up information. College had its run but it's clearly outdated.
College professors use YouTube videos
Believe it or not, college professors have been known to project course-related YouTube videos in their classes as part of the curriculum. Can you imagine paying tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to be shown YouTube videos? I don't know about you but I would be highly pissed off. At that point, colleges aren't even trying to hide the fact that they're scamming you. They're doing it in your face and laughing about it.
You can learn almost anything online
Everyone has learned something from the internet so it puzzles me how so many people don't think of it as a way to learn marketable skills. The reason this website is so popular is the I have extensive knowledge of internet marketing which I learned ONLINE!!! Over the years, I have used the internet to learn stock trading, internet marketing, random car repairs, business taxes, and so much other valuable information that has either made me money or saved me money.
Of course, I can concede that some things need to be learned in a classroom. I mentioned that in the first few paragraphs of the homepage but the vast majority of what is taught in college can be learned online!
The internet is the BEST alternative to traditional learning. Read our full breakdown on why the internet is a GREAT solution, HERE.
