Can colleges compete with companies like Coursera?
From Higher Ed Dive: “If you believe the underlying premise of Arthur Levine’s and Scott Van Pelt’s new book, the country is moving from a national, industrial economy to a global knowledge economy — and that has significant ramifications for higher education. … Students will often prioritize personalized education and low prices. Measuring learning by time in seats will transition to outcome-based education. Degrees won’t necessarily be the dominant form of credential anymore as students turn to ‘just-in-time education’ that quickly teaches them the skills for microcredentials they need for the labor market.”
