The State of Digital Education [Infographic]

by Elbert Chu

Here’s an infographic which attempts to capture an overview of digital education. The first thing you need to know is that the creator of this is Knewton, an education technology company. So it has a decidedly biased view, but still there are some interesting trends to note. ReadWriteWeb’s Jon Web gives a good summary of this concern:

Knewton’s graphic doesn’t make a causal case that Web technology makes learning qualitatively better, but it highlights the alignment of a few telling trends showing that the shift, for better or for worse, is certainly happening. The growth rate in online learning is 14 times that of overall higher education, according to Knewton. The graphic also makes an economic case, citing a 40% reduction in cost of instruction by going digital. Over 90% of educators surveyed said that they believed online tools improve education for their students.
