thought leadership more hype

Feb 22, 2012

MORE HYPE: Vinod Khosla sees edtech as one of the dozen "unhyped" Internet and mobile-based markets that deserves more attention for its potential for groundbreaking disruptions. He highlights Altius, Khan Academy, CK12, Udacity as ones to watch. (Full disclosure: Khosla's wife, Neeru, runs CK12.) "We have also had too much punditry from experts in education instead of just trying hundreds of new ways of doing things," Khosla notes. (Hey, you can't say we're not trying.) All hype and no substance is bad, though, so Khosla leaves us with this caveat: take his suggestions "as potential fishing ponds rather than predictions."
