In an article by Candice Adderly, How Technology Has Changed Education, she has touched upon many significant points. “Over the past 20 years, technology has dramatically transformed how we live, how we work and how we connect. How we learn is no exception…. Nearly 70 percent of chief academic leaders said that online learning is critical to their long-term strategy, and 77 percent rated learning outcomes in online education as the same or superior to those in a classroom setting.” A more recent study estimates that about 46 percent college students are taking at least one course online and that by 2019, roughly half of all college classes will be digitally based. On average, students in online learning conditions performed modestly better than those receiving face-to-face instruction. —SRI International for the Department of Education
