‘15% of adults in Britain have taken or are planning online course’ - Times of Malta

Around one in six adults in Britain have done, or are intending to take, an online course as the programmes become more popular with the public and employers. Many are signing up for ‘moocs’ – massive open online courses – in a bid to further their careers, while for others it is a way of pursuing a personal interest, according to research. The study, by Futurelearn, the Open University and Parthenon-EY, also reveals that employers are increasingly using the courses to differentiate between job applicants. And it shows that graduates would like to have studied for at least part of their degree through online modules. Overall, 15 per cent of those surveyed for the research said they have either taken a short online course, or intend to do so.
