Schools in rural districts often don't have the budget or the teachers to offer students all of the courses they would like to take. One rural district in a Missouri county decided to offer credit for online classes in an effort to give its students the educational opportunities it can't otherwise afford.

Culver-Stockton College continues to see growth in its online learning capabilities.

The northeast Missouri school says online enrollment is up 30% this semester, compared to Spring 2013.
