Abstract


The changing nature and platform of education, has led to new demands and challenges in the industry.   As the pendulum swings to more flexible and condensed courses and programs, many students are turning to online education for their academic needs.  While the last few years have seen a decline in college enrollment overall, online enrollment numbers have had a steady increase (Allen & Seaman, 2017).
