From the Paper:"The establishment of online courses at Eujean City Community College provides a viable solution for the college to deal with the financial constraints caused by reduced state and local government funding. The demand for continuing education has increased nationwide: the number of students needing traditional higher education has risen from 15 million to 20 million in the United States. Entrepreneurs and for-profit schools, as well as other community colleges, are seizing the opportunities to encroach on the traditional student population of community colleges through online courses (Dunn, 2000, p. 38). Therefore, with increasing numbers of people returning to schools and rising competition from a variety of sectors, Eujean City Community College's Online Distance Education Program can increase productivity and efficiency (Callan, 1997, p. 10).
