Are Universities Afraid of Online Learning?

Are Universities Afraid of Online Learning? | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it

On May 17, 2012, Peter Klein, writing for the Christian Science Monitor, wrote that, "Mainline universities loudly proclaim their love of online learning — and pedagogical innovation more generally — while doing everything possible to retard it. The strategy has been to make a few easy, low-cost, conservative moves that preserve the status quo, such as putting some existing courses online, while trying to suppress the innovative outsiders like Phoenix, DeVry, TED, Kahn Academy, etc. It’s a classic example of what Clayton Christensen calls sustaining innovation — incremental changes that keep the existing market structure intact. The last thing the higher-ed establishment wants is disruptive innovation that challenges its dominant incumbent position" (CSMonitor.com).
