Is online learning a trend?
No. Online learning is becoming a more established part of the American college and university strategies for delivering postsecondary education instruction through courses and full degree programs. Enrollment trend reports, produced annually by the Sloan Consortium, show no future decrease in the number of online courses and programs being offered. To suggest it is a trend would indicate it is not here to stay, but online learning is a “game changer” for many public, not-for-profit, and for-profit colleges and universities.
