Online Course Reviews: Luxury or Necessity?
Online learning, at least what most of us think of as online learning today, has been around since the early 1990s or so. Since that time, there has been steady and significant growth in online course and program offerings. Regrettably, some administrators and institutions forge ahead with online initiatives for the wrong reasons. They see other institutions expanding in this area and think they must as well. Or they see online education as a way to generate significant additional revenue streams. Sometimes in these situations, quality is an afterthought and is not what is driving the initiatives.
