Online or On-Campus?


Every high school and college student, every working professional engaged in continuing education and every educational leader and faculty member will address this question every day: “What is the correct mix of face-to-face and online instruction?”

According to the U.S. Department of Education, of the 20.25 million students enrolled in universities nearly 3 million are enrolled only in online courses. Nearly 400,000 studied exclusively through online institutions. Over 2.5 million students subscribed to distance education courses at traditional universities. Overall, two of three college students are currently studying in a hybrid environment with some courses on-campus and some courses online or a blended delivery of both types of courses. The trend is apparent. Institutions offering both online and on-campus instruction more effectively meet student needs.
