**At the program level, growth is uneven. A higher proportion of online programs at for-profit colleges report no growth than programs at public or private nonprofit institutions.
**The disciplines of psychology and education “had a larger proportion of programs showing an enrollment decline over the 2010 to 2011 period than were reported last year,” according to the report. By contrast, engineering, which previously posted the highest proportion of programs with declining enrollments, “had a bit of a comeback this year, and it no longer leads in this dimension,” the report says.
**An increasing number of programs in business and the social sciences are not experiencing enrollment rises.
**Sixty-seven percent of academic leaders rated online education as the same or superior to face-to-face learning. That compares with 57 percent in the first report, published in 2003.
**A steady minority—one-third of all academic leaders—continue to believe that online education is inferior to face-to-face education.
**Fewer than one-third of chief academic officers feel their faculty “accept the value and legitimacy of online education. This percent has changed little over the last eight years.”
