Today’s colleges and universities know that online learning is a must for satisfying the learning demands of a rapidly changing student body. Now, recent market data exposes just how big the business of online learning really is, as well as how much it’s expected to grow in the near future, and which components of online learning are expected to bring in the most revenue.
It’s important to keep an eye on the horizon. We are riding a huge wave of innovation. Keep balanced!

Having the option to work remotely and asynchronously was a godsend. I figured my online students would have no idea if I were moderating online discussions or grading papers while sitting next to a spouse hooked up to an Oxaliplatin IV. During this family crisis, I knew I would miss being in the same room with students, and the instantaneous give-and-take of a physical classroom. I only ever envisioned online teaching as a short-term reassignment.
My online career allows me to be a primary caregiver for my loved one. This aspect of the work wasn’t what I’d anticipated. In the end it was a God send.
In Learning Online: What Research Tells Us About Whether, When and How, Barbara Means, et al, looked at 45 studies comparing college learners in online and face-to-face conditions and found that “In most meta-analyses of controlled studies comparing learning outcomes for online and face-to-face instruction, those who learn online fare as well as, and sometimes even better than, those experiencing the instruction in face-to-face format.”
It’s not surprising that those who know the least about teaching online fear it the most. Excellent article filled with obvious truths!
About 5.4 million students, or 1 in 4, took at least one distance education course during the fall of 2012, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.
That said, even the best online programs – like their traditional campus counterparts – have some poor professors. And it can be trickier to identify those instructors in an online course until it’s too late to switch.
The many students beginning a new online course should be aware of these six signs their professor won’t make the grade.
Many valid points here! This is why continuing to expand our “teaching toolboxes” by taking classes like the E-Learning & Online Teaching Certificate Program courses, to learn about best practices of online teaching is key.
