Students gravitate to online courses - Anna Burleson, Grand Forks Herald

Many students taking classes at colleges and universities in North Dakota are doing so online. At the 11 North Dakota University System institutions, 47 percent of students take at least one distance course, which is defined as a class delivered via video, online, or other long distance instructional method. In 2012, that number sat at 40 percent, according to information presented to the interim Legislative Higher Education Funding Committee. In total, 69 percent of all NDUS students who take at least one distance course live in the state and 61 percent enrolled solely in distance courses are also North Dakota residents, Chief of Staff and Vice Chancellor for IT and Institutional Research Lisa Feldner said. http://www.grandforksherald.com/news/education/4052162-students-gravitate-online-courses-legislators-talk-higher-ed-facilities
