The tenth annual survey, a collaborative effort between the Babson Survey Research Group and the College Board, is the leading barometer of online learning in the United States.  Based on responses from over 2,800 academic leaders, the complete survey report, "Changing Course: Ten Years of Tracking Online Education in the United States" can be  downloaded here.

Top Free Classes's curator insight, January 22, 2013 2:39 AM

I love data: clean, meaningful, speaks for itself. The survey showed that the learning outcome of online courses vs. face-to-face is mostly the same.  12% of institutions already have or planning MOOCs, 55% have not decided. There is also data on online learning growth and # of online students, but it's till 2011, so excludes MOOCs that started 2012. Also, while most of academic leaders remain unconvinced that MOOCs represent a sustainable method for offering online courses,  they do believe that they provide an important means for institutions to learn about online pedagogy.
