Mean Spending on Licensing Video Content for Distance/Blended Learning Students in the Past Year Was $9,101.00

The study looks closely at how 37 academic libraries are serving students in MOOCS, blended and distance learning programs and how they plan to serve them in the future.

The report helps its readers to answer questions such as:

What role is the library playing in the development of online courses? Does the library assist in content development and if so to what extent? Does the library play a role in the licensing of copyright videos and other content and what role exactly? How much is being spent on these resources? What resources in terms of manpower and budgets are libraries committing to distance/blended learning students? How are colleges serving students in MOOCS? What kind of information literacy requirements exist for students in distance and blended learning? How are these students taught? What is the role of video and online tutorials?

The study looks at a range of many other issues such as marketing library services to distance learning students, the uses of social media, the library presence on the course management system, the uses of eBooks, and many other issues.
