Right now, it seems like 2012 will be remembered as the year that massive open online courses (MOOCs) debuted.
In five or 10 years, as we put 2012 into perspective, however, it will probably be remembered as the year that colleges and universities started challenging the way they had been doing business for the last 30 years. The nation – and its students – are demanding more affordable education and an education that meets the demands of today’s hyper-competitive global environment.
We’ve also discussed …
- Student loan debt is now more than $1 trillion – greater than credit card debt.
- Last year, state funding for higher education took the steepest year-over-year drop in 50 years.
- Private equity is ready to partner with higher education.
