Download Report: 2017 ONLINE EDUCATION TRENDS REPORT
Online education continues to see a steady increase in student enrollment (Babson, 2015); however, as students are presented with more program choices and formats from a wider variety of institutions, the competition for those students is also increasing. How can BestColleges.com help? In this second annual Online Education Trends report, we seek to distill existing research about online learners’ characteristics, goals, and preferences, as well as information related to innovation in the design of online programs.
To bolster our research, we also conducted a proprietary survey. More than 300 school administrators and 1,500 students responded to us, providing detailed information about their current experiences in on- line education. This new report is designed to help you make the best decisions possible about the online programs you are managing, as well as those you may be planning for the future. Key issues are identi ed in three categories.
