So, this is interesting. According to Phil Hill, "Based on the official Department of Education / NCES new IPEDS data for Fall 2013 term, for the first time there has been no discernible growth in postsecondary students taking at least one online course in the US." Now there is of course considerable room for growth outside that one metric. But if this has stalled, one wonders what else is happening. Possibly it reflects lower overall enrolment. Or possibly it represents a shift in private institutions back to in-person education 9which would be their market differentiator over time). Or perhaps it reflect the impact of informal online on traditional learning.
