Infographic: Online Students vs. Traditional Students

Infographic: Online Students vs. Traditional Students | Educational Technology and other stuff | Scoop.it

Getting Smart, a group that promotes innovative solutions in education, recently featured an infographic on today’s online learners. The infographic compares online students with their traditional peers, and highlights factors such as retention rates, degree selection, and career outcomes for those who pursue their degree online. Some interesting points from the infographic include:

 

About 30% of all higher education students take at least one class online.


The demand for online courses exceeds demand for traditional courses across all institution types.


Academic leaders increasingly view online education as good as or better than face-to-face instruction.


Nearly 80% of study participants said they had hired an applicant with online degree qualifications in the past year.
We thought this infographic was especially interesting in light of our recent postings on the advanced use of technology at career colleges and the demand for online learning from today’s connected learners.

 

The infographic was originally published on OnlinePhDprograms.com. To see it in full, view below or click this link:
