"See what Chief Academic Officers for institutions of Higher Education in the United States have to say about online learning.
(Washington, D.C.) From the Ivy League to tiny community colleges, a majority of institutes of higher education say online learning is just as good as traditional, face-to-face classroom instruction. Nearly three out of four academic leaders say learning online may be better within three years. A comprehensive survey released today by Babson College and the Sloan Consortium concludes that online learning is at historically high levels and will continue to grow at a rate of nearly 20%.
"Ten years ago online learning was nearly unheard of. Today, 11% of all students are taking classes online and what they are learning is just as good as if they were sitting in classrooms and lecture halls."
