Students are driven to log on to classes: More college students are going to class online - Ventura County Star

Cathryn Mann wanted to take a political science class this summer, but she didn't want to commute to Moorpark College several times a week. So, like thousands of students nationwide, she's taking the class online. "It's just not worth driving out there so much," said Mann, 19, who is living in Newbury Park this summer. "It's too far." Mann, a junior at CSU Channel Islands in Camarillo, has taken online classes before, primarily because she thinks they're more efficient. But this time, the price of gas is a major factor in her choice -- even though she drives a Honda Civic.
