We live in an increasingly mobile world and Americans are particularly mobile, changing “permanent” residence about 14 times in their lifetime. Instead of putting together a string of courses from a single university, like UMUC, modern transplants can now present a portfolio of courses from many schools, and even life experiences, to institutions the like fully accredited Thomas Edison University in New Jersey to undergo centralized review and the receipt of degrees.  Given the growth of comparatively traditional class-size pedagogy in online environments, like the public Western Governors University and the private Kaplan University, people can change schools without ever changing residences, becoming mobile learners intellectually as well as geographically, to seek the educational experiences that suit them best.
