Growing Community Colleges Online See New Trends in E-Learning
Online education isn’t just expanding. It’s also getting better. 

Student enrollment is up at community colleges online, and the gap between distance learning and face-to-face student completion rates is closing, according to the latest findings from the Instructional Technology Council (ITC).

In an environment where most colleges are struggling with budget cuts and decreased funding, e-learning continues to shine as a new way to learn.

ITC, which represents nearly 400 institutions that offer distance education courses in the United States, Canada and around the world, surveys its members each year about online learning.

The most recent survey, “Trends in eLearning: Tracking the Impact of eLearning at Community Colleges,” notes that distance education enrollments grew by 6.52 percent from fall 2011 to fall 2012. This stands in contrast to overall student enrollment, which declined by 2.64 percent.
