Edtech Magazine has a very interesting article about an infographic that looks at the college experience then and now. Created from a number of different sources, this infographic focuses on the experience of students then and now across a number of dimensions, including cost, demographics, socioeconomic and others.

According to the infographic, two out of three college students today use a smartphone for school work — a capability that didn’t exist even 10 years ago, let alone 30. The data also shows that 45 percent of today’s students will take at least one online course, whereas learning in the 1980s was confined to classrooms.
