2013 EducationDynamics eLearning Index
What online degrees should you launch next? What online degrees do prospective students search for most often? Find out in the 2013 EducationDynamics eLearning Index.
The EducationDynamics eLearning IndexSM is an annual research study analyzing aggregated data on online learning patterns gathered from EducationDynamics' college search website between October 1, 2011 and October 1, 2012. Rankings are provided by degree level, by field of study, and by specific major. Click here to review the methodology used in compiling the eLearning Index.
For the first time, data on specific online certificate programs will be included.
Three core indices are presented in the report:
• The eLearning Demand Index represents the aggregate demand for a given degree program, and provides valuable information to schools that are looking for data to make decisions on which programs they should launch or advance.
• The eLearning Supply Index contextualizes demand data by accounting not only for raw demand but also for the currently available number (or supply) of programs in each subject area, and provides valuable information on which programs have saturated the market, and which programs have not (and thus may represent optimal opportunities for new online programming).
• The eLearning Growth Index looks at the rate of growth in (or contraction of) interest among prospective students in all the various online degree areas between the last quarter of 2011 and the last quarter of 2012. This often results in less well-known degree areas rising to the top of the list.
