ST. PAUL - Students increasingly want Internet-based classes, so Minnesota colleges should expand those opportunities, Gov. Tim Pawlenty said.

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system has agreed to work toward a Pawlenty goal that by 2015, 25 percent of all credits earned at MnSCU campuses will come from online courses.

Students are encouraged to take more online courses, and the MnSCU system will be asked to make additional online classes available.
