Filed under: Online Learning News — Ray Schroeder @ 12:10 am

According to the United States Distance Learning Association, educational institutions expect the number of students engaged in online distance learning to reach a number of over 2.6 million. In fact, online distance learning education courses are now estimated to be about 10% of the available training. Schools and universities have responded to the trend of online distance learning by increasing their offerings of fully online distance education courses. About two-thirds of the largest institutions in the United States have online programs. In addition to this, online students are mostly undergraduates, reflecting that the trend of popularity will likely continue. The educational system has obviously evolved to keep up with the times. Many schools and universities have realized that people need convenience almost as much as access to the opportunity to learn. This need has spawned an innovative way of learning, which is online distance learning.
