Online and offline preferences are not mutually exclusive (and even traditionally in-person learners can be digital)

Docquity platform data correlated to learning preferences from survey.
  • Although two dominant learning cohorts exist – digital and in-person learners, in-person learners also use digital channels significantly. For example, doctors who lean more toward in-person learning attended a similar number of Docquity app sessions as their digital peers (8 versus 10 per month)

  • However, digital learners are more flexible when it comes to engaging with industry across online (56.9%) and offline (43.1%) channels, while in-person learners prefer offline engagements
