More than 14% of all higher education enrollments are online. More than one-third of universities report that having an aggressive online strategy is among their top three strategic priorities.
Many private, not-for-profit universities aren’t contemplating if they will go online. Rather, they are worrying about how to do it. Innovative institutions are focusing on how to be more agile. They know that students want flexibility and actively seek programs that combine online and on-campus elements. And thoughtful administrators recognize that they not only have to be responsive to student interests and preferences, they need to be able to respond quickly to changes in educational technology.
