The Sloan Consortium released the results of its annual survey on the state of online learning in higher ed today--and not surprisingly, more students than ever before are attending classes from the comfort of their computers.
Some of the highlights:
- Over 4.6 million students were taking at least one online course during the fall 2008 term; a 17 percent increase over the number reported the previous year.
- The 17 percent growth rate for online enrollments far exceeds the 1.2 percent growth of the overall higher education student population.
- More than one in four college and university students now take at least one course online.
