THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - One South Georgia technical college now has a record number of students enrolled in online courses.

Southwest Georgia Technical College saw a nearly 20 percent increase in online classes offered and signed up for over the last two years.

School officials attribute the jump to the economy, new technology, and convenience.

"That really is the trend today for convenience. You know students are busy with part-time jobs or extracurricular activities. And just because that convenience, our college, like most, if not all colleges, is having to offer more online courses," said SWGTC President Dr. Craig Wentworth.

Fall semester officially began Tuesday, but Southwest Georgia Tech officials say students still have until Monday to register.
