Filed under: Online Learning News — Ray Schroeder @ 12:08 am


Public and private colleges are taking the lead in online learning, but opportunities to blend Web coursework into kindergarten through 12th-grade curricula are underway. The move to online shakes the traditional business model of education and changes the role of teachers and professors, but holds potential for improving learning and democratizing education, Silverman and other experts agreed. “In the next 10 years, 50 percent of college classes will be online and 25 percent of K to 12 will be online,” said panelist David Kuntz, vice president of research and adaptive learning for Knewton, a Manhattan-based start-up technology company that partners with schools to create personalized online educational plans.
