2016 Online Learning Landscape – Infographic

DeSales University is a member of the Online Learning Consortium (OLC), a non-profit dedicated to promoting quality online higher education. The OLC is just out with this infographic summarizing the scope of online higher education and the context in which it exists.

Among the highlights:

  • 5.8 million students are enrolled in online courses, a 263% increase over the past 12 years
  • 75% of undergrads are age 25 or older
  • 90% of students think online learning is the same or better than the traditional classroom experience (71% of academic leaders say the same thing)

If you are looking to do something new with technology in your course or program, let’s have a conversation!
