Anyone interested in pursuing an online teaching career must diligently apply for open positions and document each step taken. Like most jobs, opportunities in distance learning are competitive. Moreover, the application process can be very time consuming. With the growth of the Internet, online programs in higher education have grown exponentially. In 1990, 85% of households did not own a computer in the United States. By 2005, only 10% of U.S. Households were without a computer. With the growth of online access, universities and colleges across the country have developed programs to meet consumer demand. Higher education leaders note that online education is the most significant development in the last century, as it offers students flexibility and convenience. With continued job growth and new programs developing, there will be an increase in opportunities for those interested in teaching online.
