ICYMI: eLearning is growing — and why you should care
eLearning is not just for education anymore – the term was first coined at a CBT seminar in 1999, and has since been used in areas of professional development, personal development, and – yes – education.
What else did we learn?
- The U.S. accounts for 57% of eLearning global revenues
- There are more than 3 million online-only students in the U.S.
- 46% of students are taking at least one online course
- By 2019, half of all college classes will be eLearning-based
Why does this matter? At Cranium Cafe, we work to create human connection for distance learners through face-to-face online meeting software. As eLearning becomes more prevalent, colleges and universities struggle to engage and retain their distance learners. We must rethink the ways we connect learners with the people on campus who help them succeed.
Cranium Cafe is student-facing but faculty-friendly. Through Cranium Cafe, students can recreate the in-office experience with video, audio, and tools to mark-up and edit documents together. If you want to empower your students, increase course completion rates, and improve retention of online learners – Cranium Cafe can help. Contact us today.
