Online master's program in computer science -- a much-watched attempt to apply the MOOC model to for-credit programs -- may not be the big revenue generator the institute projected it would be, but administrators deem it a success and plan to expand it.

Surveys

Oct. 14, 2015 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2015 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology explored the views of instructors (and campus administrators who oversee digital learning) on a range of timely issues.

A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

On Nov. 12, Inside Higher Ed's Scott Jaschik and Carl Straumsheim conducted a 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 Mediasite, the Learning House and Academic Partnerships.
