Web classes get gas prices' silver lining - Allison Sherry, The Denver Post

As the price of gasoline swells by the day, online education appears to be one industry that has grown sweeter for those hoping to get a degree. The wait list at the University of Colorado Denver's online program is up 90 percent from last fall. The number of students enrolled in CSU's distance-learning courses is up by 300 students from last year. At Regis University, another 300 students are enrolled in online programs compared to last year. And in the spring, the University of Phoenix saw an 8 percent increase in its online enrollment.
