Mon, 08/17/2015

Studies looking at the kinds of students applying for an enrolling in online college programs have uncovered insightful data that may help improve programs.  A July report (http://www.learninghouse.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/OnlineCollegeStudents2015.pdf )

surveyed about 1500 prospective online college students and found that the popularity of online programs is growing among a younger demographic. Though distance learning students have long been assumed to be older, the report shows thirty-four percent of undergraduate online students were under the age of 25 in the spring of 2015,​ a 25 percent increase from 2012.
