How's Web-based education faring in other states?
November 6, 2000
It's booming! Take our neighbor to the north, as an example. According to Mary Beth Susman, CEO of the Kentucky Virtual University, in "The Tennessean" article cited above, Kentucky Virtual University has been more successful than anyone dreamed.
A collaboration between the state's public and private colleges and universities, it opened its "doors" last fall with 235 students enrolled in 25 classes.
This semester, 3,100 students are taking 154 classes. Having witnessed such short-term success, expansion is inevitable. And APSU's prospective students in Trigg, Todd, Logan and Christian counties (who pay in-state tuition to attend APSU) have yet another choice in higher education.
