U.S. community colleges are putting their online education first

| News

At least half of American college courses regularly take place online.

American community colleges hold at least half of their courses online. Students require this interaction: as it is far more convenient for them to work and study than just study whilst amassing huge student debt. For example, at East Los Angeles College, 60% of courses are online. You can study at any given time - the programmes occur in the background. Notably, less than 25% of the lessons were previously taught online at the college before the coronavirus pandemic.

Representatives of the American educational system think that in the upcoming autumn semester, the proportion of online and offline courses will change once again, as expected, and will be successful. Students are extremely happy about this: many of them, through their own admission, combine work not only with learning but also with their own personal life, which can include caring responsibilities for relatives and other essential obligations. Online education allows them to make the most of their classes and keep up with their other activities. More than half of the students surveyed in California said they preferred hybrid courses to traditional courses. The situation is not unique to this region of the country. In Northern Virginia, where online courses are already popular, the number of students interested in them has increased dramatically. Other states are not too far behind, with Colorado alone seeing a 10% increase in enrolments for online courses now for the autumn term.
