With the proliferation of MOOCs, blended learning, and thousands of online courses, it’s no secret that education is changing. Today The Best Colleges, a website that helps students research online courses, shared an infographic titled “The Future of Higher Education.” In it, they raised several important questions about the future of colleges and universities in a survey of college graduates, digital stakeholders, and college administrators.
The infographic reports that most Americans are not currently pleased with the value of higher education: 57 percent of U.S. adults said that the higher education system fails to provide students with good value for their money. If changes are needed, how much can we expect will change by 2020? The infographic reports that 39 percent of those surveyed believe only modest changes will occur in higher education (defined below in the infographic), while 60 percent believe that substantial change will occur in the next eight years, and that higher education will look much different than it does today.
Take a look at the infographic, embedded below, and decide for yourself.
