More than 4.6 million college students were taking at least one online course at the start of the 2008-2009 school year. That's more than 1 in 4 college students, and it's a <br />17 percent increase from 2007. ”<br />WHAT’S NEXT ?<br />“At last count, there were more than 1 million enrollmentsin K-12 online schools in the United States. And according to recent research, the number of students taking courses online will jump to more than 10 millionin the next five years.”<br />-- David Nagel, 10/29/2009<br />photo by Sean Mcgrath<br />
