PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A number of historically black colleges and universities are considering increasing their online education presence, and a booming cybereducation market could be particularly lucrative for the schools.

While black colleges only enroll about 11 percent of all black students, their traditions and legacies still resonate in the African-American community.

Richard Garrett, managing director of the consulting firm Eduventures, says it makes sense that those schools would want to recapture students from for-profits like the University of Phoenix.

According to an American Council on Education report released this year, black students comprised about 12 percent of total enrollment in higher education in 2007 but were 21 percent of students at for-profit institutions — many of which are online.
