University of Illinois goes online

The University of Illinois will soon offer online degree and certificate programs, according to the Daily Illini, the university’s student newspaper. University officials are planning to get the “Global Campus” project up and running by January 2007.

Similar programs started by other research universities in the 1990s were unsuccessful. But University of Illinois officials believe their program will succeed because students and employers now are generally more accepting
of online degree programs.
