Alex Usher interviews his "favourite commentator on all issues related to educational technology and higher education institutions," Phil Hill. The best bit is this, where Usher comments: "25 percent of post-secondary enrollments in the U. S. are now fully online and another 25 percent or so are at least partially online. I had no idea the market was that big." But they are, and as Phil Hill makes clear, a big part of the reason was MOOCs. "MOOCs, along with 2U's initial business model, those were the two things that forced traditional higher education to get over themselves and say, we need to take online education seriously." The two of them are far more interested in markets and money than I am, but on these they know their stuff. Image: Phil Hill.
