A new report contends that state aid programs should better meet the needs of modern students in today's college landscape, which is vastly different from when most such programs were developed. 

Surveys

Oct. 29, 2014 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2014 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology examined the views of faculty members and academic technology administrators on online education and a range of other technology-related issues.

The survey was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup. 

Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics. A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

On Nov. 18, Inside Higher Ed's Scott Jaschik and Carl Straumsheim conducted a free webinar analyzing the survey's findings and answering readers' questions. To view the webinar, please click here.

The survey was made possible in part by financial support from Blackboard, Pearson and Sonic Foundry.

Booklets

Inside Higher Ed has released "New Debates About Accountability," our latest print-on-demand compilation of articles.

As with other such booklets, the compilation curates news articles and opinion essays representing a range of views.

The booklet is free and a copy can be downloaded here.

And we invite you to sign up here for a free webinar on Wednesday, April 29, at 2 p.m. Eastern, about the themes of the booklet.
