    This is a very interesting infographic. However, I was trying to learn more and found that the listed resources were mostly dead-ends. Where did you get the figure that the eLearning industry would be worth $50 billion this year? I didn’t see it mentioned in the 3rd resource as indicated. Also, do you have an alternate link for the 2nd resource? That link can no longer be found on the host site.

[…] Auch wenn ich auf den ersten Blick keine Überraschungen gefunden habe (die meisten Daten sind aus dem jährlichen Sloan-Report), sind in diesem Schaubild die Informationen über Online Education in den USA interessant und ansprechend aufbereitet. Mir ist dieses Infographic-Format übrigens vor einigen Tagen beim Stichwort “College in America” schon einmal begegnet und weil ich damals die Gelegenheit verstreichen ließ, will ich diese nun wahrnehmen. Nichts weiter. Degree Scout, 20. September 2010 […]
