What People Think About Online Education
These infographics highlight the results of a national consumer poll in the U.S. conducted online on behalf of Ashford University by Penn Schoen Berland in June 2012.
The survey targeted 1,000 respondents between the ages of 26 and 48 who were considering enrolling in a higher-education institute in the next two years to gain insights regarding their motivations and barriers relating to higher education.
The survey results were released Thursday, August 2.
RMN Digital comments: While respondents in the survey largely report that online degree programs are more “innovative and cutting edge” than traditional campus degrees, it’s important to state here that Ashford University, which facilitated the survey, itself sells online education.
Moreover, a sample size of 1,000 is negligibly small for a national consumer poll and can’t help you draw any meaningful inferences about a possible trend.
