BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University officials say enrollment in online courses has soared during the past decade across the school's campuses even as overall student enrollment has dropped.

School research shows total enrollment of degree-seeking students at IU campuses fell by nearly 5% from the fall of 2011 to the fall of 2019. But The Herald-Times reports that the number of students taking at least one online course has more than doubled during the same time.
