College Students, the GI Bill, and the Proliferation of Online Learning: A History of Learning and Contemporary Challenges
McMurray, Andrew J.
Internet and Higher Education, v10 n2 p143-150 2007
Recent developments in areas of online education and the modernization of the GI Bill of Rights in the form of the Montgomery GI Bill have served to enact an unparalleled era in the history of higher education. Now, more than ever, servicemen and servicewomen have both the financial resources and the technological resources to pursue higher learning while actively deployed in remote regions of the world. Higher education is also moving quickly to accommodate these soldier-students. Accompanying this proliferation of opportunity are several problematic issues that can subvert efforts made by individual students in the military. Resolving these initial problems will be a key to the perpetuation of these opportunities for current and future American soldiers.
