The 'Distance Learning Infographic' uses data to prove that education is moving out of the classrooms and onto a computer screen. Between 2000 and 2008, the number of students taking at least one online class rose by 14 percent. It is predicted that by 2013, 18 percent of students will receive 80 percent of their education online.

Almost every faculty is moving online and some more than others. Computer Science has the greatest online presence because it's a technical subject whereas Humanities has less of a presence because it becomes difficult to teach those subjects through a screen.

The biggest demographic taking online classes are people above the age of thirty because online classes allows for flexibility while trying to juggle a job. However, distance learning is becoming increasing more popular with younger students. Stats for Online Education Charts Trending: Older & Chilly
