It’s hard to scan the news on a given day without running across several stories about online learning. But it’s often a narrow range of questions being asked: Can online learning reduce college costs? Will it destroy universities as we know them? Stanford faculty are aggressively exploring the emerging opportunities in educational technology. Perhaps the most important lesson thus far is that “online education” cannot be thought of in rigid, monolithic terms – as if all online education looks the same, or requires giving up all aspects of the classroom experience. People learn in different ways and have widely differing educational needs throughout their lives. One size does not fit all.
