The ROI of online programs

At my recent presentation (with other ESU online program people) for the Kansas Board of Regents, one of the Regents asked about the return on investment for ESU online programs.
Below is a link to an EDUCAUSE Quarterly article that addresses many of the online return on investment (ROI) issues that face traditionally face-to-face universities like ESU.....more specifically, why brick and mortar universities have difficulty realizing the ROI that online for-profit universities attain; instructors vs. faculty, savings on overhead, etc..

Anyone have some thoughts on this?
