Big time online learning gets all the press. Read the Digital Learning Compass report on online education enrollment and you will see lots of big numbers. In 2015 over 6 million students took at least one online course – 5 million undergrad, a million grad – with bout half of these distance learners are taking courses exclusively online. The real online learning story, however, is not about size. It’s about change. The big online learning story of 2017 is not about the few schools that offer distance education to ten of thousands of students. Rather, it is about the impact that online education can have on teaching and learning at every institution. And this impact may be greatest at our most traditional residential colleges and universities.
