Enrollment in a set of high-demand University of Georgia summer courses has nearly doubled in the second year the university has offered them. “Enrollment was 1,096 last year, and it’s almost 2,000 this year,” said Keith Bailey, director of UGA’s Office of Online Learning. The university was slow to embrace the world of online teaching and learning, but began ramping up such classes a little more than a year ago. Some UGA units such as the College of Education have had not only online courses, but online degree programs for years. But last summer, UGA began offering three dozen courses that were online versions of courses students have to take before graduation.
