How can a large online education provider increase its resources even more, you might wonder?
Well, the answer came on the 8 May 2013 when Chegg, the student hub, announced a new strategic partnership with Coursera, the leading massive open online course (MOOC) platform, that will provide digital content, like eTextbooks and other supplemental tools to students taking Coursera courses online.
With the developments in the education and the increasing number of online possibilities to gain knowledge many of us are asking the question, what will be education of future look like?
According to a recent cover story in The American Interest, it will not look like the current one, because the colleges will cease to exist !! Author Nathan Harden estimates that in 50 years, half of the approximately 4,500 colleges and universities in the U.S. will cease to exist.
This will happen through technology development, virtual classrooms, lectures through streaming videos, online exams and all that we have already seen being developed. These innovations will crop up at major academic institutions, but they will only proliferate on a much larger scale and disrupt the higher education system as we know it.
It is very much likely that the future students will be faced with an entirely different set of choices than they do have today. College or career straight after high school graduation, will not be the only paths in front of them.
The four-to-six-year commitment to a highly esteemed institution will not be the fastest way to a fruitful career or a rich network.
Considering the fact that the online education is quickly gaining the momentum, as well as the increased emergence of massive online courses (MOOCs) higher education is shaken to its core. Its value, its status, its cost is also changing. The fact how young people envision their education is changing their < future development and choices.
