Definitions Fully Online (80+% of the content delivered online): A course where most or all of the content is delivered online; typically has no face-to-face meetings. Blended/Hybrid (30 to 79% of the content delivered online): A course that blends online and face-to-face delivery. Substantial proportion of the content is delivered online; sometimes uses online discussions; typically has few face-to-face meetings.

Summary Comments Data collected in this study indicate that access to higher education is the most important reason for offering fully online and blended/hybrid courses… College administrators see online programs and courses as important for (convenience) their existing student base and also for attracting new students to their programs.

Summary Comments … this study confirms that while most colleges are offering some form of online and/or blended learning courses, some resistance still exists internally …This resistance does not appear to be large-scale, adamant refusal issues as much as concerns ..Although one senior administrator at a four-year residential college made the point that:   “ At a residential college experience and socialization and culturalization are important so I’m not looking to excuse [students] them from the campus environment or direct interaction with classmates and faculty.”

Summary Comments While online and blended learning have made major inroads into mainstream higher education, it is not clear that they are causing major upheavals in policy and planning. … As more online and/or blended courses are offered, institutional plans call for incremental increases in the requisite support areas more so than major new investments in academic programming and support…

… one significant exception …college changed one of its traditional 120 credit baccalaureate programs from forty courses each worth three credits to thirty courses each worth four credits. The change was made possible by adding an online component to every course equal to one credit. In short, every three-credit face-to-face course would have one credit added to it that would be conducted online thereby increasing online learning activity by twenty-five percent Summary Comments
