Its members could find no evidence that they were likely to overturn established higher education practice or sweep away existing institutions, as predicted by their more excited advocates. On the other hand the advent of high quality online courses and resources, available easily to anyone, free and world-wide, is clearly significant” Andrew Green April 2014
