Online Educational Delivery Models: A Descriptive View (EDUCAUSE Review) | | The business value of technology |
Phil Hill is Executive Vice President at Delta Initiative and blogs at e-Literate.


As we continue to discuss important issues such as access, affordability, and personalized learning in higher education, we would be helped by having a richer understanding of the changes that are already occurring. I would like to offer a more descriptive view to capture the growing number of approaches enabled by educational technology. The following is certainly not exhaustive, since the field is rapidly changing. In addition, not all of these models will end up thriving in the long term. My intention is simply to describe some of the primary models and ideally to reduce some of the confusion evident in public discussions.
