Meanwhile, the ‘Online Education and the Job Market in the Middle East’ poll, 2012, also revealed that online education -- specifically -- is viewed in a more positive light today than it was five years prior to the poll (69.9 per cent), while 85.2 per cent of professionals in the Middle East are ‘for’ online education. Another 66.7 per cent believe that a mix of both online and classroom education would be the best type of education.
