Professionals Debate Quality Of Online Education
from U.S. News & World Report
In recent years, online education has become increasingly popular at colleges and universities across the country. According to the 2010 Sloan Survey of Online Learning, about 5.6 million people took at least one web-based class in the fall 2009 semester. This marked a 21 percent increase from the year before, compared to a 2 percent growth in overall higher education during this time frame. As online education establishes itself as an important part of higher education, many academic professionals have discussed whether or not it can give students the same academic results as campus-based learning.
