Delivering value beyond school walls

When we created our IU Online education initiative over five years ago, we intended to add a highly convenient option for our current students to help them graduate on time and also reach new students who might not otherwise have considered a college education. In other words, our goal was to deliver an authentic—and authentically IU—higher education experience. The results of this effort have been quite outstanding. This fall at IU, we have seen a record 5,066 students enrolled in more than 115 online degrees and over 2,000 online courses offered by IU, a 4 percent increase over last year’s record. A remarkable 29,000 students—nearly a third of our total enrollment—are enrolled in at least one online course, a figure that has surged dramatically in the past four years, and those courses are accounting for more than one-tenth of all credit hours across the university and matching revenue.
