Entering the Mainstream: The Quality and Extent of Online Education in the United States, 2003 and 2004


This is the second annual study of the state of online education in U.S. Higher Education. This year's study, like last year's, is aimed at answering some of the fundamental questions about the nature and extent of online education. Supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and based on responses from over 1,100 colleges and universities, this year's study addresses the following key questions:
-Will online enrollments continue their rapid growth?
-Are students as satisfied with online courses as they are with face-to-face instruction?
What role do schools see online learning playing in their -long term strategy?, and
-What about the quality of online offerings, do schools continue to believe that it measures up?
