The Florida university system has set an ambitious goal of having 40 percent of the undergraduate student credit hours in online classes by 2025. That would more than double the usage of online classes from the 2013-14 academic year, under a goal set by the system’s Board of Governors. More college students taking online classes… Florida looks to create online university…  A key factor in that transition will be cost, with the idea that students may have an incentive to shift to online classes if they receive breaks on tuition or fees. A new report discussed by the Board of Governors’ Innovation and Online Committee, which met Monday in Tampa, showed that students have actually paid more for taking online classes at six state universities when compared to the cost of taking regular classes on campus.
