Overview

This volume highlights existing issues in online courses andprograms and provides strategies for addressing them as the demandfor online education continues to grow. Organizational changescaused by greater reliance on technology for teaching and learningare still not fully understood, and many colleges continue to reactto change rather than positioning themselves to take advantage ofit. As a challenge to that, contributors to this volume usepersonal narratives and research to discuss how online educationcontinues to lead to organizational, professional, and personalchange.

Community colleges are at the forefront of the tremendous growthin online programs. Two-year colleges now serve more than half ofall online students, and they are poised for continued growth asmore adults seek education and retraining.
