National Public Radio broadcast the first of a two part series on online education
this morning on Morning Edition. According to the story, one in five current college students is taking at least one online course. The story also includes interviews with online faculty, one of whom estimates that an online course takes twice as much work, in prep and teaching, as an on ground course. There is also a link to the Sloan Consortium 2007 survey
, which is the source of the 1 in 5 statistic.
Look for the second part of this series tomorrow.
