Lifelong learning sites research

A recent Pew research on lifelong learning and technology revealed that "A large majority of Americans seek extra knowledge for personal and work-related reasons. Digital technology plays a notable role in these knowledge pursuits, but place-based learning remains vital to many and differences in education and income are a hallmark of people’s learning activities." By significant margins (81% to 52% for personal learners and 75% to 55% for professional learners), people pursue training in a location (like a library) rather than on the Internet.
