Why MN Online Education Is Still a New Experiment
Minnesotans still lack online education options, even after the launch of an online course last year.
Online education is still a new phenomenon in the state, despite being embraced by many.
It’s a new trend that hasn’t quite gained widespread traction yet, but it’s certainly growing.
Minnesots online education marketplace has more than 2,000 students enrolled, according to the Minnesota Education Association.
Minnesotan students who enrolled in online education in 2017 had an average grade point average of 3.7, the association reports.
That’s up from 2.9 in 2016.
The average GPA for students who took online classes in 2017 was 3.1.
The average GPA in 2016 was 3 (which is also up from 3.2).
In terms of the students who are enrolled in the online education marketplaces, the average GPA is higher than for students enrolled in traditional colleges and universities.
For instance, the Minnesota Department of Education reports that the average for students in the Online Learning Marketplace is 3.9.
That is up from 4.4 in 2016 and 3.3 in 2015.
Students are also enrolling more often.
In 2017, 6.7 percent of students enrolled online enrolled in at least one course.
That was up from 5.2 percent in 2016, and 5.3 percent in 2015, according the association.
The Minnesota Education Agency reports that online education enrollment increased 7 percent from 2016 to 2017, to 7,636 students.
In that same period, the number of students who did not take online classes dropped by 4.5 percent.
In 2018, the agency reports that 6,907 students enrolled and that enrollment rates rose 1.6 percent, from 6,900 students to 6,995 students.
This is up 5.7 percentage points from 5,933 students in 2017.
The percentage of students taking online classes decreased slightly, from 17.2 to 16.4 percent.
The percentage of those students who were enrolled dropped from 22.5 to 20.9 percent.
