Innovation for Online Students Benefits All Students
Higher education encompasses an ever-expanding continuum of instructional delivery models and systems. One-third of all college students nationally — more than 7.1 million — take at least one online class. At Penn State, where online education has been embedded in the institution since the first World Campus classes were offered in 1998, half of our resident students take at least one course online. The rapid increase of web-enhanced instruction throughout the learning enterprise is increasingly blurring the bifurcation between online and face-to-face instruction, and improving pedagogy and student learning across the university. . .
