UK expands classes offered online

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -

The University of Kentucky is offering more online classes for students this summer.

A school official told the Lexington Herald Leader that more than 3,000 students are already signed up for the 70 classes that will be offered.

Arts and Sciences Dean Mark Kornbluh said the main reason for the classes are to help students graduate in four years.

The move is a follow up to a successful experiment in 2010, when UK tried its first large-scale attempt at online education.

Professors in the College of Arts and Sciences offered 20 online summer school classes that year.

Online classes are just now starting to get embraced at UK, where the Council on Postsecondary Education shows only 3 percent of students receive credits online.

The school wants to up that to 6 percent by 2014.
