Miami University ramping up e-learning offerings

By Eric Robinette, Dayton Daily News

Miami University plans to ramp up its e-learning offerings so that by the year 2020, 10 percent of its course offerings will be online only. That’s a far cry from some 10 years ago, when only about two percent of students nationally engaged in some kind of e-learning course, according to Beth Rubin, Miami’s assistant provost for e-learning. Last year, more than a third took some kind of online course. “What that means to me is that American students expect online learning and they use it,” Rubin said. “We projected that Miami would have 2,348 students in Oxford enrolled in online learning. What we have already, without the summer enrollments, is almost 3,500 students who’ve enrolled in online learning,” she said.
