Cost-Efficiencies in Online Learning: ASHE Higher Education Report

Front Cover
Wiley, Aug 11, 2006 - Education - 144 pages
This report analyzes and summarizes the current literature about online learning's costs, using a framework developed by the author that helps disentangle cost influences across various research studies - for example, finding the intersection where research on students enlightens costs related to delivery.

What do we know about achieving cost-efficiencies through online learning? Quite a bit, as it turns out, if you know how to interpret the data. Development is more expensive than delivery; development is where cost-efficiencies are made possible; delivery is where those cost-efficiencies occur; and infrastructure is a barrier, but also essential.

This is volume 32, number 1, of the ASHE Higher Education Report.
