    3. 3. DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONSIt’s been interesting watching this unfoldin music, books, newspapers, TV, butnothing has ever been as interesting tome as watching it happen in my ownbackyard. Higher education is now beingdisrupted; our MP3 is the massive openonline course (or MOOC), and ourNapster is Udacity, the education startup.
    4. 4. FORECASTING THE DEMISE OF THE UNIVERSITY"Universities wont survive. The future is outside the traditionalcampus, outside the traditional classroom. Distance learningis coming on fast.―- Peter Drucker, Forbes magazine 1997
    5. 5. DEFINING DIChristensen describes disruptive innovation as:“Generally, disruptive innovations weretechnologically straightforward, consisting of off-the-shelf components put together in a productarchitecture that was often simpler than priorapproaches. They offered less of what customers inestablished markets wanted and so could rarely beinitially employed there. They offered a differentpackage of attributes valued only in emergingmarkets remote from, and unimportant to, themainstream”
    6. 6. DEFINING DI“Disruptive technologies bring to market a verydifferent value proposition than had been availablepreviously. Generally, disruptive technologiesunderperform established products in mainstreammarkets. But they have features that a few fringe(and generally new) customers value. Productsbased on disruptive technologies are typicallycheaper, simpler, smaller and, frequently, moreconvenient to use”

    40. 40. DISRUPTIVE INNOVATIONSIn the academy, we lecture other peopleevery day about learning from history. Now itsour turn, and the risk is that we’ll be the last toknow that the world has changed, becausewe can’t imagine—really cannot imagine—that story we tell ourselves about ourselvescould start to fail. Even when it’s true.Especially when it’s true.- Clay Shirky, 2012
