The 5 stages of digital readiness for adult online students - LAURA ASCIONE, eCampus News

Just 17 percent of adults are in the “digitally ready” group, meaning they are confident in their online skills, have little hesitation when it comes to finding trustworthy information online. Adult learners in this group are predominantly well-off, highly-educated and are in their 30s or 40s. Two-thirds of this group has done some personal learning online in the past year, and 40 percent said most or all of their learning takes place online. Thirty-one percent of adults are in the “cautious clickers” category–they are confident in their digital skills but are less likely to engage in personal learning, offline or online. Sixty percent have used the internet for at least some level of personal learning and 23 percent have taken an online course, but 59 percent said they have concerns around trusting online information.
