Online learning a core form of course and program delivery in Canadian PSE: survey

October 18, 2017

Online learning is now a core form of delivery for Canadian universities and colleges, according to a report released at the World Conference on Online Learning in Toronto. The survey targeted over 200 public PSE institutions across Canada, with responses covering 78% of all university and college student enrolments. The survey revealed that almost all Canadian colleges and universities now offer online courses, and that online enrolments have expanded at a rate of 10%-15% per annum over the last five years. It further found that online learning now constitutes between 12%-16% of all PSE for-credit teaching, and that two-thirds of Canadian post-secondary institutions see online learning as very or extremely important for their future plans. World Conference on Online Learning
