According to a new report from The Learning House, Inc. and Aslanian Market Research, “The Online College Students 2017: Comprehensive Data on Demands and Preferences,” online students want more interaction with instructors and fellow students. The survey included 1,500 students who were currently enrolled in, recent graduates of, or giving serious consideration to online programs, and more than 50% said that interaction is important, while around 25% said more interaction would improve quality and experience. The report recommends that schools improve their programs by better reflecting students’ career and educational goals, place more emphasis on responsiveness from admissions, and adapt approaches to accommodate mobile tech — as 80% of respondents said they used their device during their search for a school, while 40% said they used a mobile device to access coursework.
