Prediction 1 – Online Learning will grow

After reading many of the other predictions for 2007 (Stephen Abrams,  Wesley Fryer, David Warlick, and Gregg Downey ), I thought I would offer one of my own:  The number of K-12 students in online courses will increase. 

This was spurred on by the announcement by the US Distance Learning Association that they will be publishing a quarterly “Distance Learning Insert” into USA Today – the first one will be included with the January 5, 2007 USA Today issue.  In the announcement, John Flores, CEO of USDLA states:

 “Distance learning is transforming the American educational landscape, through on-line technology, video conferencing systems, satellite delivery and other media,” Dr. John G. Flores, Chief Executive Officer of USDLA said. “We expect this supplement to be an invaluable guide for millions of present and potential distance learners as well as a means for our member institutions and corporate sponsors to reach them.”

Secondly, these various recent reports indicate that online learning will continue to increase – any one of these reports will show you the trend – in K-12, higher ed and internationally.
