EdSurge Live: A Town-Hall Style Video Forum

What if there was a talk show about edtech? We thought we’d try one, so we’re launching EdSurge Live, an experimental way to gather readers and experts via video chat to talk about key issues facing those exploring the future of higher education.

NEXT EPISODE: Should Colleges Outsource Their Online Programs?

Tuesday, March 26 at 1pm PT/4pm ET

In the past few years, a growing number of colleges have turned to outside companies to help them launch and manage their online programs. These companies are known as online program managers, or OPMs, and EdSurge recently published a pair of op-eds offering different perspectives on how these OPMs fit into the broader higher education landscape. One thinks that OPMs have allowed universities to keep up with increasing student enrollment. Another lays out the trade-offs with these arrangements between OPM companies and colleges. them.

How OPMs are the Modern Enrollment Managers

The ‘O’ in ‘OPM’ Could Stand for ‘Outsourcing’

We’ve invited a panel of experts, including authors of the articles, to join us for a discussion of the pros and cons of outsourcing online programs. Our confirmed guests so far are:

Michael Feldstein, co-publisher of the e-Literate blog and partner at MindWires Consulting.

Kristin Palmer
, director of online programs at the University of Virginia
