Survey article describing the University of Phoenix's online learning division, Phoenix Online, from a business perspective. Of note is the fact that Phoenic Online is the company's fastest growing division, accounting for 50,000 students and $327.5 million in revenue. Also interesting is the analyst's explanation for Phoenix Online's success: quality of education. "The course work (at Phoenix Online) is a threaded text discussion with real people the students get to know well," he said. "There's actually more collegiality in a University of Phoenix Online course than at a university lecture with 200 students."
