Abstract

Online learning in colleges and universities has had phenomenal expansion over the last two decades. The idea of virtual learning environments held, and still holds, promise for both students and college administrators. For students, being able to go to college became an actual possibility and with the added bonus of flexibility and convenience while working full time or with demanding family obligations. For administrators, online learning was to help allay rising costs as well as tap into new student markets to stem the tide of a diminishing pool of U.S. students. With such phenomenal growth, has use of virtual environments over extended its utility? Are unintended outcomes in terms of instruction and learning now appearing for students and universities? In other words, do we have a problem? This presentation will highlight current issues with online environments in higher education.
