Where is Higher Education’s Digital Dividend?

Terry Anderson, Connecting the Dots, Apr 15, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Terry Anderson poses the question in the title by means of an example from David Wiley: "the cost of renting 75,000 movies  ($9.00 a month  from NetFlicks) or renting  any of 20 million songs from Spotify  ($9.99/month) with the cost of renting a college text book . A single biology text book rents for $12.99 a month from BookRenter." Thus, he writes, "the time is right for a 'market correction' that exploits the affordances of the Net to create drastically lower cost of quality higher education experience." It's long past due.
