New Study: Distance Education Up, Overall Enrollments Down
A new report, Grade Increase: Tracking Distance Education in the United States, by the Babson Survey Research Group reveals distance student enrollments have increased for the fourteenth straight year in 2016. 

The survey reveals the most recent gain translates to over thirty percent of higher education students taking at least one distance education course. Growth, however, was uneven; public institutions grew by 7.3 percent, private non-profit institutions by 7.1 percent, while private for-profit institutions had their distance enrollments decline by 4.5 percent.
