Ten years ago, 1,234 were taking online college courses at Rutgers University. Last year, in the fall semester of 2017, that number reached 23,042, according to university figures. Nationwide over 6.4 million people are sitting in front of computers to take college courses, about one-third of all the students taking high education classes, Richard Novak, Rutgers vice president for continuing education and distance education, told the university board of governors recently. “If we’re going to make Rutgers as accessible and affordable as we can, we’ve got embrace online portals,” university President Robert Barchi told the board.
