The Increasingly Digital Community College - Ashley A. Smith, Inside Higher Ed

Distance education at community colleges continues to increase even as overall enrollment at two-year institutions falls. A study released Monday found distance education enrollments account for nearly all recent student growth at two-year institutions. The report was based on a survey of technology leaders at community colleges. They reported about a 4.7 percent increase in student enrollment in online programs from fall 2013 to fall 2014. While that number is down from 5.2 percent growth from 2012 to 2013, overall community college enrollment declined by 3.5 percent from fall 2013 to fall 2014, according to the American Association of Community Colleges. The report was released here during the 2015 AACC annual meeting. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/04/21/survey-shows-participation-online-courses-growing
