KSU working to grow online learning classes

by Paula Schleis, Beacon Journal

The size of the Kent State online learning community has nearly doubled in the past two years as the university focuses on getting students and faculty to see the value in flexible learn-from-home offerings. President Lester Lefton made a presentation to his board of trustees Wednesday that showed the number of students taking “distance learning” classes has grown from 6,945 in 2010 to a current enrollment of 12,359. In that same period, KSU has gone from offering 272 unique online courses to 428. But the “real measure” of the program’s success, Lefton said, is in watching the number of credit hours that are matriculating from face-to-face classrooms to the Internet.
