- 32% of higher education students now take at least one course online.
- 76% of academic leaders rate the learning outcomes in online education as the same or superior to those in face-to-face.
- Only 30.2% of chief academic officers believe that their faculty accept the value and legitimacy of online education – a rate that is lower than recorded in 2004
