Despite Loss of Grants, Online Education Will Continue To Grow

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I noticed a blog post at the Chronicle for Higher Ed on the Sloan foundation ending grants for online education. This development is unfortunate, though in some ways not entirely surprising. Online education is not quite a fledgling industry anymore. Many companies have sprung up to explore the space. While the loss of the grants comes during a tough time in business overall, online education continues to grow as a business and is playing an ever greater role as a teaching mechanism. Other folks are concerned that the advancement of innovation might slow down, but with new web 2.0 tools emerging every week, I don't think the pace of change will decrease.
