Developing Online/Hybrid Learning Models for Higher Education Programs
Young, William; Allen, Linda; Warfield, Kimberly
Alabama Journal of Educational Leadership, v3 p47-56 Sep 2016
Colleges and universities are looking for creative ways to increase student enrollment while providing flexible course offerings and maintaining adequate fiscal stewardship. This review of selected literature advocates for the use of online instruction in higher education in order to address, with instructional fidelity, the learning preferences and needs of the modern era student. A decade ago, student enrollment for online learning was estimated to be around 1.9 million students (Allen & Seaman, 2004). Today, online course enrollment estimations are much closer to 5.3 million (Fleming, 2014). The authors' perspective for meeting this demand is for higher education programs to embrace this evolution in instructional delivery.
