a new report from Learning House and Aslanian Market Research. For the sixth annual “Online College Students 2017: Comprehensive Data on Demands and Preferences” report, researchers polled 1,500 students who are “seriously considering, currently enrolled in or have recently graduated from a fully online program”

a number of recommendations for helping online programs attract students, including:

  • Cater to students’ career goals. “Since online students are so career focused, understanding which programs will best educate students for the job market is critical to online program success,” the researchers noted;

  • Adapt online access to accommodate mobile technology.

The University of California, Los Angeles will now provide individualized online career coaching to all of its alumni as well as all UCLA Extension students and alumni, thanks to a joint effort out of UCLA Extension, UCLA Alumni Affairs and the UCLA Career Center.

UCLA will continue to provide traditional career services — such as career advising, programming and career fairs — through its Career Center.
