Study Finds More Universities Putting Course Online

A study by the Sloan Consortium found that a growing number of colleges are putting online more of the courses that they offer in a face-to-face setting. The consortium, an organization that promotes standards for online learning, found that more than three out of five institutions offering face-to-face undergraduate or graduate courses offer them at the same level online. The survey also revealed that more college officials see distance learning as crucial to their long-term strategies. The survey can be found at the Sloan Consortium Web site.
