Computers and related technologies have infused the world, from science and technology to business and entertainment, playing a key role in almost every industry.
And with the introduction of social media and the ubiquitous presence of tools like Facebook and Twitter, even how we keep in touch with colleagues and friends is done virtually.
People used to associate computers just with the Internet and office needs like spreadsheets and word processing. Now, however, there's an understanding that tools created by computer scientists and developed by software engineers are of use to daily living -- from renting a movie to following updates of a crisis overseas to learning.
This means that today you have an alternative to traditional education in online computer/information technology programs.
These degree programs are offered by an increasing number of schools.
