Across the nation, 6.7 million higher education students have enrolled in an online course during their college career, making up a third of the nation’s college students. 70 percent of universities report that online learning plays a critical role in their long-term strategy, according to the Babson Survey Research Group in San Francisco. Northern Michigan University is one of the many schools across the country with rapid growth in online learning. During the past decade, NMU has increased their number of offered courses online from 26 in the fall of 2004 to 114 in the winter of 2013, while 146 online courses are being offered this summer to meet the high demand of online learning at NMU.
