What do we know about scaling online learning? Perspectives from research and practice on industry growth

Large scale usage is already here and the possibilities opened up by online learning are wide-ranging and immediate, according to A. Frank Mayadas, senior advisor to the Sloan Foundation and lead off speaker for this symposium. He notes there are cost-effective ways to build even greater scale onto the strong foundation already in place with great understanding of culture, technology, leadership, public profile and policy.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this matter to be actually something which I think
    I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
    get the hang of it!

  2. Usually I don’t read post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very compelled me to take a look at and do so! Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thank you, very nice post.
