Online Teaching is important at Kent State
According to 2012 IPEDs data, Kent State’s UG and Grad student headcount was 8767 students. That puts Kent State in the top 13 of ALL public university SYSTEMS.
We have had a consistently large increase in online course enrollments. From Spring 2009 to Spring 2014, we had a 900% increase in student enrollments. Kent State was an early adopter of distance learning and has been increasing and improving our online courses for over 15 years.
We now have more than 15 fully online graduate programs and 7 fully online undergraduate programs along with several certificate programs.
As technology and research about online learning has progressed, so have our efforts to improve both teaching and learning opportunities online.
