After $6 million, Idaho’s online higher education program moves closer to launch - Kevin Richert, Idaho Capital Sun

This fall, two students at each Idaho college will register for their fall classes on a new statewide online portal — and the state will pick up the costs. The 16-student pilot represents a “stress test” for Online Idaho, a new effort to offer college courses beyond the state’s college campuses. It’s also a baby step of a milestone, millions of dollars into the State Board of Education project. The State Board has put more than $6 million into Online Idaho so far, all from federal coronavirus aid.
