Online Learning in Illinois

Since its inception in 1998, the Illinois Virtual Campus (IVC) has tracked online enrollments at colleges and universities in Illinois. Just last week, the IVC issued its report with data from the Fall 2010 semester.

Illinois colleges and universities reported offering 10,734 online course sections that generated 254,200 enrollments during the Fall 2010 term. This is an increase of 1,348 online course sections (14%) and 33,420 enrollments (15%) respectively from the 9,386 online course sections and 220,780 enrollments reported for the Fall 2009 term.
