The popularity of online classes jumped almost 29 percent last school year, with more than 93,600 Ohio public college students taking Internet-based courses in the fall, according to a statewide report released today. “The fast growth … makes a college education more convenient and accessible and allows us to invest more in teaching and learning by saving on facility costs,” said Eric D. Fingerhut, Ohio’s higher-education chancellor. More than half of all Ohio students taking online courses are at least 25 years old.
