To assist adult learners and high schoolers making college decisions, The CollegeBound Network, a trusted resource for information about college and career school options, today released two infographics about online education on MyEducation.com, one of its many websites dedicated to connecting consumers with colleges.

Entitled “Everything You Need to Know About Online Learning” and “7 Myths & Facts About Online Learning” the infographics include statistics about the growth of online degrees and enrollment in online programs, as well as the perceptions of online degrees among employers.

The infographics include online learning statistics from The Sloan Consortium, U.S. Dept. of Education, Society for Human Resource Management, Babson Survey Research Group, and other related research.

• "Everything You Need to Know About Online Learning" uses a cartoon theme as a fun way to share essential information about the format of online degrees, what it takes to earn an online degree, and the type of financial, technical, and academic support available to online learners. Key points include: “You can earn a degree completely online.” “Many online schools offer financial aid.” “Online schools can be accredited.”

• "7 Myths & Facts About Online Learning” dispels myths about online learning related to the rigorous format of online courses, the acceptance of online degrees among employers, and the explosion of online degree programs. Targets online learning myths such as: “Getting an online degree is taking the easy way.” “No reputable school offers online degrees.” “You can’t get a job with an online degree.”

“As online education options continue to grow, it’s critical that parents, students, and adult learners understand what types of online degrees are available, and what it takes to be a successful online learner,” said Luciano Rammairone, founder and president of The CollegeBound Network. “Presenting facts, statistics, and tips related to online learning in infographics is another way that The CollegeBound Network serves as a resource to those making college decisions.”
