Just because you have the good sense to attend an online college doesn’t mean you should have to miss out on all the fun of sporting events! In light of the college football national championship, Conan O’Brian recently released a video featuring a lesser known but just as important college football league.

The 25th has finally rolled around! No, not the 25th of December which marks that other holiday. I mean the 25th of Kislev, the day in the Jewish calendar where we celebrate the Festival of Lights. Time to break out the menorah, spin those dreidels, and send off your wish list to Harry the Hanukkah Fairy.
The spread of technology in classrooms fascinates me with each passing year. We’ve come a long way since Oregon Trail and figuring out how many oxen died after trying to ford the river. Nowadays, students can learn different languages, solve math equations, study business and even learn physics.
