As colleges and universities across the University of Wisconsin System fill with more degree seekers, online courses are becoming increasingly popular. Students are looking for more flexible scheduling options that don’t always involve coming to campus, making it easier to work part time or even full time while still attending school. Online interest is up about 10 percent this year across the UW Colleges, two-year campuses that often are the destination for adults returning to school or those looking to work while attending school. “There will continue to be an increase in the online population nationwide, when you combine the recession, the costs and the savings students can have,” said Jeff Meece, assistant campus dean for student services at UW-Marshfield/Wood County, where there are about 60 online offerings.
