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.


"The Evolution of Distance Learning" is Inside Higher Ed's latest compilation of articles.

The print-on-demand booklet features articles about a range of institutions and approaches.

This compilation is free and you may download a copy here.

And you may sign up here for a free webinar on Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 2 p.m. Eastern about the themes of the booklet.
