The Hawaii Department of Education and the Hawaii Virtual Learning Network (HVLN) have joined forces to provide students with E-School, which is an online education system supported by the Blackboard educational management system for grades K-12. Project Inspire (a technology-based seminar for training teachers) and the School Library Services (a digital-based resource center catered to support school librarians in Hawaii) are two additional online learning programs managed by the HVLN.
Even Hawaii's unique language and cultural education programs are taking a proactive shift towards online education; this is evidenced by the A'o Makua online learning program from Kamehameha School. Additionally, the University of Hawaii and Hawaii Pacific University have also begun providing entirely online degree tracks for their students.
Like most academic institutions in the nation, colleges in Hawaii have been enduring some dramatic increases in tuition. Within five years, public institution rates have grown 97.6%. Regardless of the state's increased tuition rates, higher education appropriations have increased by only 1.7%. However, during the 2014 and 2015 period, the Executive Budget Request for the University of Hawaii reported the public institution will utilize over $2.38 million on online and distance learning.
