Now that the entire world has been compelled to experiment extra with on-line supply, the place does that go away the worldwide marketplace for on-line schooling on the Ok-12 degree? And what has it accomplished for the worldwide marketplace for on-line undergraduate schooling?
Those were the key questions at a panel discussion that EdSurge editor Jeff Young moderated earlier this month at the ASU GSV Summit in San Diego. For this week’s EdSurge Podcast, we’re bringing you highlights of that discussion, which was actually held in person in front of an audience of folks wearing masks, and also streamed online to those who couldn’t be there in person.
We were joined by three guests who have been leading online schools:
- David Freed, the chief operating officer of Crimson Education, an online teaching and tutoring company that runs an online high school.
- Jade Roth, CEO of Avenu Learning, a joint venture between Southern New Hampshire University and the SEEK Group that supports people seeking certificate, undergraduate and graduate degrees.
- Tomohiro Hoshi, head of school at Stanford Online High School, an online high school affiliated with Stanford University.
And it turns out the answers to these questions are complicated, and nuanced. Different parts of the world are more open to online learning than others. And as you’ll hear, our panelists had some theories on why that’s so.
