This post references some good conference coverage by Phil Hill and considers the question of whether institutions are ready for the collapse of online program management (OPM) services. "Leaders in the sector, including 2U, Coursera and Keypath, never made a profit on the activity, and Pearson and Wiley sold off their OPM offshoots in recent months." The revenue-sharing model was never profitable, according to the articles. Moreover, as colleges acquired the relevant skills (especially during the pandemic) the need to outsource abated. The tech is complex enough that, if you're large enough, you want to do it in-house, if only to stay on top of features and costs.
