Hoboken, New Jersey (PRWEB) August 26, 2008
EducationDynamics today released the 2007 eLearning Index, a tool designed to offer colleges and universities critical insight into trends in demand for online education. By identifying the supply and demand characteristics in online education, EducationDynamics' exclusive research report allows schools to tailor program offerings to boost high-quality leads.
EducationDynamics aggregated the data from one of its premier websites, eLearners.com®, which has been connecting learners to online education for nearly a decade. While eLearners.com offers an information-rich platform through which students can find appropriate online degree program offerings, the website also offers higher education institutions proprietary data to enhance their prospecting activities. By tracking activity on the website, EducationDynamics is able to measure the supply and demand of online education to determine which programs are hot, which are not and to identify the greatest opportunities in launching new online programs.
"With nearly one million unique visitors a month and more than seven years of mining data from prospective students visiting the site, eLearners.com is in the unique position to observe trends, demands and behavior of prospective online students," explains Steve Isaac, CEO of EducationDynamics. "As a result, we are able to gather broad demographic and psychographic data proven to help schools meet demand in areas of high student interest in online programs and increase the effectiveness of their prospecting initiatives."
The eLearning Index captures the current landscape of demand for online higher education, with specific emphasis in the following areas:
- Demographic qualities of those seeking to pursue online education;
- Key motivators for students pursuing an online degree;
- The most highly sought after degree programs;
- A comparison of relative performance by academic degree level; and
- States with higher and lower demand for online education.
For schools interested in exploring additional information gleaned by the 2007 eLearning Index, the report is now available on a paid subscription basis by contacting Howard Mandel at [email protected] or 201.377.3020. As part of the eLearning Index subscription package, institutional planners will receive two hours of an EducationDynamics analyst's time for a detailed and custom analysis of findings as they pertain to their specific institutional goals.
