Trends in education: Online learning opportunites


Online learning is not new. But every year it is becoming more and more common place. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in the 2002-03 school year, 36 percent of school districts in the U.S. offered online courses to their students. Two years later, the number only rose to 37 percent. But in 2009-10, 55 percent of school districts had online classes, a number that has been rising exponentially. For contemporary students, this isn’t anything new. But for their parents? This very well could be uncharted territory in the educational landscape of the current generation.
