Even before the outbreak of the Kovid-1 pandemic epidemic, online high school was a growing trend and some online schools were gaining global reach. Now that the whole world is being forced to experiment more with online delivery, where does it leave the international market for online education at the K-12 level? And what has he done for the global market for online undergraduate education?
These were the key questions in the panel discussion that were moderated by AdSerge editor Jeff Young at the ASU GSV Summit in San Diego earlier this month. For this week’s Adsense podcast, we bring you the highlights of that discussion, which was actually held in person in front of an audience of masked people, and streamed online for those who couldn’t attend in person.
We were joined by three guests who are leading online schools:
David Fried, CEO of Crimson Education, an online education and teaching company that runs an online high school.
Jade Roth, CEO of Avenue Learning, a joint venture between Southern New Hampshire University and the SEEK Group that supports certification, undergraduate and graduate graduates.
Tomohiro Hoshi, head of school at Stanford Online High School, an online high school affiliated with Stanford University.
And it turns out that the answers to these questions are complex and subtle. Different parts of the world are more open to online learning than others. And as you can hear, our panelists had some theories as to why this was so.
