Studying the Long-Term Effects of Online Education

I was recently linked to a post from Education Database Online Blog on the long-term effects of online education. The article was very informative and provided great insight on the current situation as well as the  future direction of online education. The post talks about size of online courses, MOOC’s,  costs associated with going to class, the physical tolls of online learning, and how things can get better. I will leave you with one quote from the article that really stood out to me, the rest of the reading is up to you!

“Learning needs to become more open, mobile, social, and analytical because today’s students — active learners — demand it” Stacey Fontenot, Vice President of Product Marketing, Academic Platforms at Blackboard.
