With the rapid increase in the number of students enrolled in online courses, the traditional college classroom is shifting from a physical location to a virtual meeting space. Self-directed learning has become the new measurement of success.
The overall number of students enrolled in higher education courses has decreased by nearly 34,000 students. According to the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, this overall decline is the result of a fewer full-time students; part-time enrollment is on the upswing.
This concept has been the foundation of supplementary education company, Eye Level. Since its creation in 1976, Eye Level has recognized the importance of building and strengthening the fundamental principle of self-directed learning, and it has incorporated self-directed learning into its unique curriculum. Eye Level has nurtured the development of self-directed learning in millions of students worldwide, from pre-school to secondary education levels. Eye Level has more than 180 centers in the U.S., and more than 780 additional locations throughout the world.
As the future of education trends toward hybrid learning, preparing students for the new college campus is more important than ever.
