As student demand for online courses and degrees continues to grow, local schools are working hard to recruit students. Janet Schutte, director of marketing for Indiana Tech, said the school offers about 30 online degrees ranging from associates to masters. Offering online degrees significantly helps with recruiting students, she said. “We’re seeing a big increase in students enrolling in online courses. We’re also seeing a lot of students like to be able to mix their classes and take some in a classroom and some online depending on their schedules and subject matter. Most of the school’s online students are in their 30s or 40s, working while trying to complete a degree. They also have a few military students who like the ability to move without disrupting their college program.  “We’re definitely adding more online degrees, taking some of the degrees that we offer at our campuses and developing them for online. There are also a couple of degree programs only available online so as we look at new fields and decide whether there is a market for the degree, we’ll look at whether it should be in classroom or online or offered both ways.”
