What it all meansThere can be no doubt that HE is the key to awell-qualified workforce. And a well-qualifiedworkforce makes for a stronger, productiveeconomy. But it all starts with access. Ifstudents are still forced to operate in ancienteducational model, how can they be expectedto participate successfully in the modernmarket and society.
Robust online course offerings are notthreatHarward, MIT, Stanford or other prestigue Universities arenot going anywhere. There are still millions of students whoneed and want that we think of as traditional education.….But millions more are not be in served by that style ofeducation – and the real threat is that they will never beable to improve thier skills or make their lifes better.
