11 online learning demands from today’s picky students - Meris Stansbury, eCampus News

According to “Grade Level: Tracking Online Education in the United States,” a report released the Babson Survey Research Group, the Online Learning Consortium, Pearson and Tyton Partners—that surveyed more than 2,800 colleges and universities and IPEDS data for 4,891 responses—though online education enrollment growth continues, it’s at the “slowest rate ever.” http://www.ecampusnews.com/top-news/online-demands-students-447/
