StraighterLine is a new kind of remote education company, offering online college courses in basic subjects such as math, accounting and writing at an extremely low flat rate of $99 a month.

Students can work through their classes as quickly or as slowly as they need to, and can go on to a new course without paying any extra fees above the $99. In a Washington Monthly story on StraighterLine, one student was able to complete four courses for a grand total of only $200. A similar course load would have cost $2,700 to $6,300 elsewhere, and would have taken two to there times as long to complete.
