There has been a 263% increase in students enrolled in online courses since 2004, and in 2012, approximately 5.5 million college students took at least one online class. According to the Babson Survey Research Group’s 2015 Survey of Online Learning, the percentage of students taking classes online is still growing. The study found that more than one in four students now takes at least one online course.
