Ohio Online Education Boom
In 2005, over 42,000 of the state's college-goers or 10 percent of the students enrolled in public universities, took at least one class online in 2005.
The Ohio Learning Network, a wing of the state's Board of Regents, recently published a study about Ohio’s online higher education efforts.
The study found that half of the online learners were full-time students, and two-thirds of them were women.
- Two-thirds were female.
- Half were 25 or older.
- Half were full-time students.
In Ohio, as elsewhere, many campus officials report that their online offerings are growing more popular with traditional students looking to squeeze extra credit hours into a semester.
Much of the information for this story is from the Columbus Dispatch story by Bill Bush.
