There is no lack of anecdotal information on the rising demand for — and value of — blended learning. Eduventures has recently backed this up with solid research on the mismatch beween student demand and available programs:
[T]he Eduventures survey found a gap between supply and demand: 19 percent of respondents said they were enrolled in blended programs, while 33 percent of prospective students listed that format as their preference.
Over 20,000 adult students and prospective students were polled in the Eduventures study. The full study is available to Eduventures subscribers, but there’s a video posted here with some highlights.
