According to a March 22, 2016 report on lifelong learning and technology by the Pew Research Center about two-thirds of all American adults have participated in a personal learning activity this year. What some might find surprising is that the Internet is not the primary go-to place for these activities.
Note the following results from the survey:
- Distance learning – 61% of adults have little or no awareness of this concept.
- The Khan Academy, which provides video lessons for students on key concepts in things such as math, science, the humanities and languages – 79% of adults do not have much awareness of it
- Massive open online courses (MOOCs) that are now being offered by universities and companies – 80% of adults do not have much awareness of these.
- Digital badges that can certify if someone has mastered an idea or a skill – 83% of adults do not have much awareness of these.
