Over the last 10 years, the share of college graduates who have taken an online course has doubled. In that time, online education has been transformed from a product advertised on late-night television to a totally new way for people to learn throughout their lifetimes. Now in the decade ahead, higher education will be defined by a new generation of online learning that is personalized, interactive, and offered by some of the nation's most selective colleges and universities. This panel discussion will look at trends in online learning and predict what's ahead in the decade to come.
