Infographic: How the Internet is Changing Education

Infographic via onlineeducation.net

An infographic from OnlineEducation.net shows how the Internet is changing education. The Atlantic’s technology section has a post analyzing the graphic, and highlighting some of its most interesting facts. The graphic covers a lot of information, but here are just a few:

  • “Online education is a $34 billion industry.”
  • “The for-profit University of Phoenix is now the largest university in the United States, enrolling more than 500,000 students. That’s about 13 times larger than the University of Arizona.”
  • “Use of online education has been growing at an astronomical rate, and it isn’t stopping. Seventy-five percent of public higher learning institutions have online learning in their long-term plans. By 2019, it is estimated that 50 percent of all classes taught will be delivered online, and many of these will be available for free.”
