This story about increased online community college enrollment in Louisiana is interesting for a couple reasons:

1. Online Community and Technical College enrollment jumped 43%-a combination of more courses and worse economy.

2. Students and colleges saved money learning online.

3. Increased ability to take CC courses online will lead to another wave of early college high schools; this time around we’ll see more career/tech including a very cool project incubated by Advance Innovative Education in Baton Rouge.
