Higher education providers across Latin America are turning to online study instead of traditional lecture halls as a way of bringing university education within the reach of growing numbers of less affluent students, writes Richard House for Financial Times. Already, a 10th of Latin America’s 25 million university students study online using distance learning, with over half of that total in Brazil and a survey by FT Confidential Research, a Financial Times service, shows that adoption of remote learning continues to soar region-wide. Distance learning is helping to expand options for publicly funded higher education in remote areas of Brazil such as the Amazon basin.
