The technology for delivering online education is just beginning to enter the mainstream of academic thought. In last year, there have been major announcements of programs at Stanford, Harvard and MIT, which have attracted hundreds of thousands of new students for existing courses. If this type of service proves as effective as other internet concepts, and delivers high quality at a lower cost, this development could prove to be highly disruptive for existing secondary education and college institutions.
