The ubiquity of technology has transformed education, making online learning part of the “new norm.” Over the past few years, online enrollments in higher education have continued to grow in the US. Online enrollments are being driven by the growing number of students who are seeking flexible formats for courses, certificates, and degree programs to support career placement, advancement, and transition as well as to pursue advanced studies. Increasingly, students enrolled in on-campus programs are also registering for hybrid to fully online courses throughout their enrollment.
