Is Online Education Replacing the Classroom Learning Experience?

There was a time when higher education was synonymous with huge amounts of debt and living in poverty, but the advent of online education programs has caused us to rethink our approach towards education. With improved training costs, ongoing access to resources and better retention strategies, online education is causing world-famous universities to transform century-old models of learning and adapt their offerings to students’ current needs.

A survey of 1,500 past, present and future students conducted in 2013 by online education solutions partner Learning House reveals that online education is gaining revolutionary momentum. Forty-five percent of those surveyed declared they wouldn’t have pursued a degree if an online program wasn’t available, with only 15 percent saying they would only be interested in obtaining a conventional degree.

Asked about the major advantages of studying online, 32 percent of the respondents mentioned the ability to study when or where they wanted, and 17 percent pointed towards the flexibility to study around work obligations.
