Rate of Growth in Distance Education Doubles in Community Colleges
In a study published by the Instructional Technology Council, it was found that for the 2008-09 academic year enrollment in distance education for community colleges grew 22% over the 2007-08 academic year. This rate compares with a growth rate of 11% in the previous year. This rate is somewhat higher than that found in a recent Sloan-C study that found for all distance education the growth was 17%. The growth rate for overall enrollment in higher education was less than 2% in this period.
