Why is Online College Enrollment on the Rise?

Sloan Consortium's 2009 annual review reported that enrollment for education online is rising. In fact, 2.35 million students pursued degrees or training over the Internet in 2008, compared with just 1.98 million students in 2007. While the 18.7 % growth rate of enrollment in online schools between 2007 and 2008 was not as high as last year's increase of 22.9%, the increase is still impressive. In addition to major growth in online student enrollment, the study also found that over 56% of schools offering online education consider it a "critical long-term strategy."
