Gas prices, convenience driving up online course popularity - Jim Cook, Dothan Eagle

Convenience and rising gas prices are contributing to an increase in the number of students taking online courses through Troy University. According to Deb Gearhart, director of Troy University’s eCampus program, online enrollments have grown from 10,550 last summer to 13,985 this summer, a 43 percent jump. Gearhart said online enrollments had been growing for the past few years, but the recent year-to-year jump was substantial.
