Nearly 27,000 students took advantage of IU Online in fall 2016 by taking one or more distance classes, according to the Office of Online Education. Among those who find that taking online courses is a good fit are students who are active in the military or veterans. “Our students who are active service members or veterans find that online learning works best because it offers flexibility when they are deployed overseas or have other service commitments,” said John Applegate, executive vice president for univeristy academic affairs. “Many of our military-connected students with families like the ability to adjust their class schedules around their responsibilities at home while still being able to continue their education at a world-class university.”
