The online degree has been growing, with online education programs like MOOCs growing to an estimated $1.5 trillion, according to an annual report from the Institute for Information Technology (IIT).
The IIT also noted that online education was now the most popular type of online learning, followed by courses offered in an offline format.
Online education, however, is still limited by the need to connect to a network of online institutions.
This means that students need to pay for access to these online educational resources through the purchase of subscriptions, subscriptions for which are subject to the terms and conditions of their subscription, according the report.
While online education has been gaining momentum, the IIT said the availability of these online resources could not be assured in the coming years.
In a statement, the institute noted that the cost of online education, which it estimates to be $1,100 per year, is rising as more universities are offering online courses.
Online universities are often run by academic departments, meaning students must pay fees, which can range from $25 to $200 for an online degree program, depending on the institution.
But these fees are often paid through a combination of loans and government grants, according a statement from the IETF.IIT President K.J. Dutta said the institute believes that the rise of online universities could create a positive impact for the industry, as students can now learn more online than they could have previously.
The IIT, which represents more than 500 online universities, also noted a decline in the number of institutions offering online degrees, as more institutions are opening online learning programs.
However, the industry continues to face the challenge of retaining graduates, said Duttsaid in the statement.
The institute believes it will help address this challenge by creating and implementing courses that are more relevant to students who want to go to university.
“In 2016, IIT ranked online universities in the top five online learning destinations, according that ranking.
Online learning programs offer courses that span topics from science and technology to business and engineering.
The average price for an undergraduate degree is $22,400, according Topply, which estimates that more than two-thirds of the courses are online, and a third of the tuition is paid through federal grants, loans, and other sources.
According to a 2017 report from Toppler, there are more than 250 online degree options available, from business and business related programs to engineering and social studies.
There are about 15,000 online degree providers in the U.S. according to the ITC, which also noted there were about 6,500 online online degree opportunities worldwide.
