Impact of the internet on education

In 1971 the Open University in England began broadcasting lectures on television and 25,000 students enrolled for courses. In 1989 the University of Phoenix launched its private for-profit online school and paved the way for online education. Today we have top-class institutions offering a wide variety of recognised courses online. Courses range from creative writing and mathematics to chemistry and psychology. 

The Khan Academy is a popular Indian online education provider, which started as a set of instructional videos on YouTube. Online education offers learning to the student at the student’s convenience without the physical limitations of a classroom or forcing people to travel long distances. 
The future holds amazing possibilities - online education gives the opportunity for students in the most remote and inaccessible villages to participate and learn.  By 2019, it is expected that 50% of all classes taught will be delivered online.
View the infographic below for some interesting stats about online education trends.
