Technology is a defining characteristic of the 21st century. It is now so intertwined with every day life, it’s no surprise that educational institutions are trying to integrate increasing amounts technology into education. The University of Idaho has stressed the importance of this combination by working on a distance education plan in hopes of being able to provide more students, both undergraduate and graduate, with the opportunity to receive online degrees. It’s an opportunity for expansion that the UI simply can’t miss. This could be a tremendous opportunity for individuals who are interested in earning a degree but are unable to relocate to a university campus. The university offers more than 20 online degree options for graduate students, but undergraduates are currently unable to acquire a degree online. Expanding the university’s online degree program would not only help students who are unable to get to campus, but also increase UI’s educational outreach and influence.
