IPEDS Distance Learning Data Collection

The Digital Learning Compass is deeply appreciative of the U.S. Department of Education’s collection of distance education activities in its annual Fall Enrollment survey. The survey includes responses from every institution in the U.S. that receives Title IV financial aid funds.
Based on the feedback of our users, Digital Learning Compass will continue to suggest ways to improve the data collected, both in the IPEDS instruments and in institutional reporting practices.
