Online vs. on campus education

At the University of Illinois Springfield about 25 percent of students take the majority of classes online. That number doesn't even include students like Sarah Quigley who take some courses on campus and some on the computer.

"Last year was the first year that I really took classes online at the university and I took 3 out of my 4 classes online," said Quigley.
