{Infographic} Virtual Trends: Higher Education

So how about that Arrested Development Season 4, amirite? For those who haven’t seen it, I’m here to give you all the spoilers from the first ‘I’ve made a huge mistake’ to George Sr.’s amazing chicken dance (because his chicken dance is the best of all the chicken dances!).

Before you digitally punch me in the face, no spoilers. Just good old-fashioned tech talk!

Alright, so you and I both know online courses are totes on the rise. And according to the Pew Internet and Life Project, we should see a big bang within the next 10 years. Studies are continuously showing students who choose to take part in one online course are more likely to enroll in future online courses.

What does this mean for higher education? If more schools continue launching online courses, enrollment could potentially skyrocket. Many individuals are already climbing aboard the academic interweb train with the introduction of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), a (sometimes free) online course aimed at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the web.

Do you foresee more higher education institutions offering online courses in the future? If you’ve ever taken an online course, how effective would you say it was compared to classroom-based courses? Give us your own personal 411 in the comment section below.
