US Education – Media reports
The WALL STREET JOURNAL – “One promising approach, many experts say, is hybrid schools,
which blend online study with face-to-face interaction with teachers.” November 12, 2011
The New York Times – “The high costs of high-quality education put it off limits to large parts of
the population, both in the United States and abroad, and threaten the school’s place in society
as a whole. We need to significantly reduce those costs while at the same time improving
quality”. December 5, 2011
The New York Times – “As part of a seismic shift in online learning that is reshaping higher
education, Coursera, a year-old company founded by two Stanford University computer
scientists, will announce on Tuesday that a dozen major research universities are joining the
venture. In the fall, Coursera will offer 100 or more free massive open online courses, or MOOCs,
that are expected to draw millions of students and adult learners globally.” July 17, 2012
The WALL STREET JOURNAL - America's higher education problem calls for both wiser choices by
families and better value from schools. …. “New instructional methods can also contribute to
cost savings. Online courses are already making inroads, and the model makes intuitive sense for
many subjects: Take the top teachers in a field and give online access to their lectures to
students at many different colleges.” January 15, 2014
Industry research by IBIS
Capital and Edxus Group, revealed
enormous potential for e-learning market.
While education as a whole is triple the size of the media and entertainment
industry at $4.2 trillion, digital education is currently only 20% of the size of the
digital media market.
Education is undergoing the same disruptive effects of digitalisation that the
media industry has seen in recent years.
IBIS Capital and Edxus Group expect to see fifteen fold growth in the e-learning
market in the next 10 years to represent 30% of the total education market.
The Research suggested under certain circumstances, the transition to digital
education will be even quicker and more disruptive than that observed in the
media industry over the past decade.

The Rise of Blended Learning

Online learning is sweeping across America.

In the year 2000, roughly 45,000 K–12 students took an online course.

In 2009, more than 3 million K–12 students did.

What was originally a distance- learning phenomenon no longer is. Most
of the growth is occurring in blended-learning environments, in which
students learn online in an adult-supervised environment at least part of
the time.

As this happens, online learning has the potential to transform America’s
education system by serving as the backbone of a system that offers more
personalized learning approaches for all students.

In Disrupting Class,* the authors project that by 2019, 50 percent of all
high school courses will be delivered online.
