Online learning is an important part of higher education, and students are becoming more discerning about how they engage with it. How can your institution provide them with the educational experience they want? The sixth annual Online College Students report, developed by The Learning House, Inc. and Aslanian Market Research, provides insight into the online learning landscape. This report surveys 1,500 prospective, current and recently graduated online students for their views on online higher education.

  • What students look for in online courses
  • The most popular fields of study
  • How mobile technology affects online learning
