New Sloan-C Report on Distance Education

October 23, 2007

The Sloan Consortium released a new report this month by I. Elaine Allen, Ph.D. and Jeff Seaman, Ph.D. on distance education.   The report is named Online Nation: Five Years of Growth in Online Learning, and is the fifth annual report on the state of online learning in U.S. higher education, based on responses from over 2,500 colleges and universities.  If you’d like to read the report, the PDF is here.

    While I cover online learning mainly from a student viewpoint, I’m recommending your blog to readers. It’s very hard to get much unbiased info on distance learning, and you’re a good source of updates on how the profession views it. FYI – my post recommending you is at: http://www.successdegrees.com/online-education-blog/index.php/93/distance-learning-interest-group-blog/

    Thanks for the link, Bob! Let us know if, in your own writing, you have any suggestions that might help us provide library services for distance learners. What do you think are the main things distance students are looking for from their libraries?
