Taking an online class is no longer a novelty on college campuses, no longer the sole domain of long-distance learners sitting in their living rooms in between jobs and kids. More college students than ever before are demanding it as an option when they register for classes — even traditional students who live on campus. Many are mixing online and conventional classes for convenience or as a way to avoid getting locked out of an overbooked course. At Purdue University, 35 percent of the 8,200 students who took an online class last year lived on the West Lafayette campus. There’s been a similar uptick at Indiana University, which is developing a strategic plan to include online learning in the traditional campus offerings in Bloomington.
