The “2014 Global Survey of Students” compiled responses from more than 20,800 students at 37 institutions in the Laureate network. Students from 21 countries participated in the survey, which sought student opinions on what universities would look like in 15 years. More than two-thirds, 68 percent, of students surveyed said they believe the university of the future will offer “free online libraries where students can access course materials and books and other reference tools,” according to a summary of the findings. Fifty-nine percent told researchers they “believe that students will utilize social media platforms to learn and in turn to teach other students,” and a 43-percent plurality said they believe universities will offer free online content for most courses.
