        Is online learning effective?

        The progression of where online learning started and where it’s headed next is quite exciting. Though it has been around since the 1990s, the acceptance and effectiveness of online education has dramatically accelerated in the last few years. According to a study done by Ernst and Young, “University of the future: A thousand year old industry on the cusp of profound change,” a significant transformation of university models is expected in the coming decade and beyond. Monash Online is at the forefront of this transformation. Not only are we ready for the coming education revolution, we are excited to help lead it.
