Boston Consulting Group Identifies “Five Faces of Online Education
Once upon a time, distance education was all about “anywhere, anytime” access, with the primary market being adult students with career and family challenges that made coming to campus regularly difficult. Today, all that has changed. According to statistics from the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), today one-third of all students take at least one online course. Not only that, but 15 percent of all higher education students are studying in a program that is at least 80 percent online.
