"Changing Course : Ten Years of Tracking Online Education in the United States" (pdf)

un nouveau bilan sur la situation aux USA :

Dear Educator,
Thank you for signing up to be notified when the 2012 online learning survey report was published.  This year's report Changing Course: Ten Years of Tracking Online Education in the United States has just been released.

  • E-Book versions coming soon
The tenth annual survey, a collaborative effort between the Babson Survey Research Group and the College Board, is the leading barometer of online learning in the United States. Based on responses from over 2,800 academic leaders, the survey report reveals that the number of students taking at least one online course has now surpassed 6.7 million. Higher education adoption of Massive Open Online Courses remains low, with most institutions still on the sidelines.

Previously underwritten by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the report has been able to remain independent through the generous support of Pearson and the Sloan Consortium.

Some key report findings include:

  • Over 6.7 million students were taking at least one online course during the fall 2011 term, an increase of 570,000 students over the previous year.
  • Thirty-two percent of higher education students now take at least one course online.
  • Seventy-seven percent of academic leaders rate the learning outcomes in online education as the same or superior to those in face-to-face.
  • Only 30.2 percent of chief academic officers believe that their faculty accept the value and legitimacy of online education - a rate that is lower than recorded in 2004.
We welcome comments.  Please let us know how we can improve the reports at
