September/October 2003 - The Nature and Characteristics of Online Learning in Illinois Colleges and Universities
By: Dr. John S. Washburn, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale
Keywords: Online Learning, Statistics, Illinois, Illinois Virtual Campus, Online Courses

The Illinois Virtual Campus (IVC) is a partnership of Illinois colleges and universities that provides residents of the state with easy access to all of the online and other distance education offerings of Illinois colleges and universities. The IVC provides high quality support services to all online students in the state, and provides leadership for the development of quality, comprehensive, and cost-effective online education offerings and support services within the higher education system of Illinois. This study addressed a series of questions regarding changes in the institutions that participate in the IVC focusing on the nature and status of online learning, how institutional representatives perceive their institutions' support for online learning, and implications for state and local policy/planning. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data from IVC institutions. The final report is presented this month as the ION Pointer and Clicker.
