Online schools need an online campus. 
"Stanford University Students Flock to a Virtual Campus" 

A pandemic moves schools to think about an online campus.  Actually, some were thinking that way before the pandemic.

Advantages of the online campus

  • Serve students over a wider area.
  • Support adult learners who already hold jobs.
  • Increase enrollments without increasing facilities.
  • Draw on adjunct faculty from a much wider area.
  • Share resources among schools.
  • Bring in potential students on field trips
  • Use the educational resources of the web.
