Why The Future of Education is Online

This infographic below explores how the traditional education is being disrupted by online education. In fact, 65% of college and universities now say that online courses are a critical part of their long-term strategy. It is clear that this trend is affecting the main stream population of college and university students with 31% of them now taking at least one course online. New technology is fueling online education adoption and enabling it to be very effective. This is why online classes have swelled to enroll over 6.1 million students in at least one online course.

  • The 6.1 % growth rate represents over 400,000 additional students taking at least one online course.
  • The percent of academic leaders rating the learning outcomes in online education as the same or superior to those as in face-to-face instruction, grew from 57% in 2003 to 74% in 2013.
  • The number of students taking at least one online course continued to grow at a rate far in excess of overall enrollments, but the rate was the lowest in a decade.
