When the University of Illinois signed up with Coursera to begin offering 10 online courses to students at no cost, they might not have been able to predict that they would receive such a positive response. According to the Chicago Tribune, around 14,000 pupils enrolled to take advantage of these courses and this is only a few days after they began advertising this new development. While this number indicates the level of interest that has been rising in the field of online education, as these courses begin to gain ground and more students discover the opportunities that are being made available to them, this number could seem miniscule compared to the number of students that will join up for the classes of their choosing in the near future.
