Survey Shows Slowdown in Online Course Growth Rate

A newly released Babson study recorded the lowest growth surge in students who took at least one online college course in a given year in almost a decade of surveys, while the higher education adoption of Massive Online Open Courses remains low. Despite the courses’ continued popular enrollment, it was found that only 7.1 million people took 1 online course or more — about a 6 percent increase from the year before. Although the study did record continued growth, this 6 percent increase is the lowest ever recorded. 36.5 percent in 2005 was the highest.
