[Infographic] The Changing Landscape of Online Education (CHLOE) 2018: A Deeper Dive

As online learning enters the higher education mainstream, The Changing Landscape of Online Higher Education (CHLOE) project illuminates institutional strategies, policies, and practices in this dynamic area. Leaders rely on CHLOE for insight into how peers and competitors are leveraging online technology to grow enrollment, innovate teaching and learning, and enhance student success.

This infographic is designed to help raise awareness of the CHLOE project, encourage participation in future CHLOE surveys, and to serve as a visually engaging introduction to this study. A sample of findings it features include:

  • Nearly half (45%) of all institutions have centralized online support functions
  • The growth of new online programs continues to outpace the growth of annual enrollment by more than two to one
  • 66% of students prefer blended learning to fully online, but institutions still predominantly emphasize online over blended
  • Adaptive learning and learning analytics are the top two technologies most likely to be adopted by online programs (chosen by 55% and 54% of respondents, respectively)

CHLOE, an annual survey of online learning leaders at colleges and universities nationwide, is a partnership between Quality Matters and Eduventures. Look out for the CHLOE 3 report in early 2019.


The first CHLOE report, based on survey results from 104 institutions, was published in 2017; the CHLOE 2 report appeared in 2018. This infographic highlights some of the key findings from CHLOE 2, drawing on 180 institutional responses.
