Source passage:

“Student enrollment in online courses will continue to increase. In the past, taking an online course may have been viewed as advantageous for the conveniences it provided; however, it may soon become a necessity for many students to turn to online courses to pursue their academic aspirations. This will be true for many students who due to the economy and change in school loan rates, will be required to work full time to pay for their education. Recognizing this looming change in higher education, faculty and administrators must take note.” (Tolman, 2017, p. 583).
