The number of students who were enrolled exclusively online grew to 15.4 percent  which is up from 14.7 percent in 2016, or about one in six students. The percentage of all students who combined online and in-person courses grew faster, to 17.6 percent in 2017 from 16.4 percent in 2016.  The percentage of students who took at least one course online grew to 33.1 percent, from 31.1 percent in 2016.  Online education continues to prove it’s not only here to stay but growing.

With traditional non profit institutions, OPM’s & for-profits continuing to cater to this growing market it’s clear that there is a lot of opportunity ahead.  Most of the traditional non profits who succeed are generally partnering with OPM’s like 2U or OPM alternative facilitators like Edufficient.  Those who try it alone continue to have a high failure rate.

  1. I agree and see continued growth in online education. It makes sense and provides a convenient means to get a degree while working. I recently completed a BSN online and it really helped my earning potential

    Its a mainstay for education in everyday life. Having built hundreds of online courses for colleges, institutes, and universities, the education universe is ever expanding and the technology is getting better and cheaper. This is creating more access to schools large and small, and potential students no longer bound by a GPS location.
