News: Online Ed Trends at Community Colleges - Inside Higher Ed

Community colleges reported a 9 percent increase in their distance education enrollments from fall 2009 to fall 2010, according to a national survey of two-year institutions released Tuesday by the Instructional Technology Council, an affiliated council of the American Association of Community Colleges.

This increase is higher than the 7 percent increase in overall student enrollment in all of higher education and the 8 percent increase at community colleges during the same time period.

Survey respondents identified several factors that contributed to this growth. Thirty-nine percent noted that this was “typical growth for distance education classes.” Thirty-seven attributed the growth to the “downturn in the economy.” Twelve percent cited a “new enrollment initiative.”
