Online delivery drives US enrolment increase

October 23, 2007

In 2006, 3.5 million students (19.8% of total PSE enrolment) took at least one class online.  This 9.7% increase looks good for online delivery, but keep in mind that the year before the increase was more to the tune of 36%.  The number of institutions launching online education is slowing significantly. A recent report suggests that online education represents a large part of the overall 1.3% enrolment increase.
