The Case for Online Learning

Leadership Lounge

Online learning has been a part of higher education since the late 1990s. In fact, universities have utilized distance learning for decades, beginning with correspondence and then moving videoconferencing in the late 1980s.

Getting people to the Learning Circles required some marketing outreach.
