Document Number: 6044Entering the Mainstream: The Quality and Extent of Online Education in the United States, 2003 and 2004 - Over 1.9 million students were studying online in fall 2003, and schools expect the number of online students to grow to over 2.6 million by fall 2004. This second annual study of the state of online education in U.S. higher education seeks to answer some of the fundamental questions about the nature and extent of online education. The report discusses whether enrollments will continue their rapid growth, the level of satisfaction among students, the role schools see online learning playing in their long-term strategy and the quality of online offerings compared to face-to-face instruction.
