UF Online growing but looking for strategies to increase enrollment

After canceling a contract with Pearson Education last year, the University of Florida is altering its strategy for getting more students enrolled in its online degree programs, according to an article in Inside Higher Ed.

UF Online, a platform to earn a degree from the university exclusively through online courses, is integral to the state university system’s goal of making just less than half of all undergraduate credit hours online based. The university hasn’t reached enrollment goals it previously set but enrollment was up by 70 percent more than last academic year and made $66,000.
