Online education will be booming over the next decade, according to a new Pew survey of college presidents. Some highlights, as noted by Today's Digital Life:
- Half of the presidents surveyed say most undergrads will take at least some classes online in 10 years, up from the current estimate of 15%.
- 62% say more than half of textbooks will be digital in 10 years.
- Half of the presidents say online courses offer the same value as those in a regular classroom; that's higher than the 29% of the general public that feels the same way.
- This brave new world is apparently making plagiarism easier: Half the presidents say they've seen an increase over 10 years, and nearly all blame the Internet.
