Online education programs and courses are on the rise at private colleges and universities compared to three years ago, according to a new report from the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) and Learning House. In 2013, CIC and Learning House conducted a similar survey of chief academic officers at private colleges and universities, finding that about 15 percent have “extensive” online offerings (defined as five or more fully online programs). The latest survey, comprising responses from 169 chief academic officers of CIC member institutions, found that 25 percent now have extensive offerings. Furthermore, the survey found that private colleges and universities are growing increasingly accepting of online instruction, with more private institutions overcoming barriers to offer online programs.
