Enrollment in online classes at Hancock College, as at many community colleges, is increasing more rapidly than overall enrollment, according to officials. Nancy Meddings, academic dean of distance (online) learning at Hancock, said the number of students enrolled in online classes has more than doubled since 2005, when 2,293 students registered for online courses. “Online classes have been growing as a modality statewide and nationwide really quickly since about 2005 or so,” Meddings said. About 5,000 students have enrolled in online courses this spring at Hancock. They are a part of an enrollment group second only to daytime registrants.
