Inside Higher Ed reports on a new survey from the Council of Independent Colleges and the Learning House, which suggests surprising trends about the online and distance learning efforts of private schools throughout the United States. Of the more than 160 chief academic officers surveyed, more than 25% reported offering at least five fully online programs, a 10% increase from 2013. The same percentage of respondents reported revenues from the programs exceeding $1 million, and more than 60% say tuition revenue from distance learning has remained steady over the last three years. 44% of institutions are likely to increase marketing efforts for international students in the near future.
