"By the year 2020, the college experience could be drastically different. One potential change is a move toward distance learning. In a survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project of 1,021 Internet experts and users, 60 percent agreed with a statement saying that by 2020 'there will be mass adoption of teleconferencing and distance learning to leverage expert resources ... a transition to ‘hybrid’ classes that combine online learning components with less-frequent on-campus, in-person class meetings'.”

Distance learning enrolments up despite for-profit drop

Distance learning enrolments up despite for-profit drop | Distance Learning | Scoop.it

Damon Ing's curator insight, June 28, 2016 7:53 PM

I find it is interesting that distance learning enrollments are up even when for profit institutions are dropping. The majority of student enrollments are expected to continue to rise over the years. This rise is important to realize that the demand for this type of education is going up. Universities should take note and continue to invest and develop their online programs.
