Students are signing up in record numbers to take cyber courses. College administrators say online learning is cost effective and convenient. More and more people are becoming computer savvy, and they have a growing number of options for online learning. But those aren't the only reasons college students opt to take classes over the internet.... SIC administrator Dana Keating says gas prices are another force driving up online enrollment. The college accepts students from 5 counties and for some, the commute can be costly. "We've spoken with our counselors and our advisers and they say students are coming in and switching from a classroom class to an online class to save them that trip," says Keating.
