E-Learning On The Rise

Career College Central summary:

  • E-learning is a growing trend at community colleges, according to survey results from the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) and Hewlett-Packard (HP). E-learning is already used at 47 percent of community colleges and is expected to increase to 55 percent within two years. The survey of 578 community college faculty was conducted by Eric Liguori, an assistant professor at California State University.
  • Eighty-four percent of respondents believe e-learning is a valuable educational tool. More than half (56 percent) prefer to use teaching modalities that have some form of online component: 36 percent prefer hybrid instruction, 12 percent prefer primarily face-to-face with some online supplements and 6 percent prefer purely online learning.
  • The top five benefits of e-learning identified by respondents are:

    • It increases access through location and time-flexible learning.
    • More resources and information are available to students 24/7.
    • Teachers can use a wide variety of tools and methods for teaching.
    • It is a good supplement to face-to-face curriculum.
