Internet populations in Europe

Sure, China gets all the attention for having the largest internet population. But don’t overlook the internet population in Europe, with countries like Russia, France, Spain, and Denmark reporting double digit growth. Netherlands has 82% of the population connected to the internet. In spite of significant growth of internet access, online learning is still poorly utilized. In several recent discussions, the aversion to the internet as a teaching/learning tool have been highlighted. The question for me is no longer “is online learning as effective as classroom learning”. Rather, I’m asking “what better option do we have to meet current learning needs at a reasonable expense (of time and money)?”
