Characteristics of Exclusively Distance Education Institutions, by State: 2011-12



Released April 2013. Technological changes over the last decade have made it much more common for students to enroll in distance education, most often in a course taken over the Internet. The IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System) collects data from institutions about whether they offer any distance learning opportunities, defined as “an option for earning course credit at off-campus locations via cable television, internet, satellite classes, videotapes, correspondence courses, or other means.” Distance learning opportunities are available throughout postsecondary education and at all types of institutions.This report, prepared for the National Center for Education Statistics, provides tables showing statistics concerning institutions that are exclusively distance education.
