Daphne Koller on the Future of Online Education - Alexandra Wolfe, Wall Street Journal

For now, Dr. Koller is looking forward to launching the online M.B.A. program. In it, students can get a full M.B.A. for a targeted cost of around $20,000, or choose blocks of expertise, such as digital marketing or accounting, in which to earn certificates (cost: $79 each). She also plans to continue expanding the company internationally by acquiring courses in different languages. Ultimately, Dr. Koller wants to make the school experience like “turning the tap—and great education comes out for anybody.” Eventually, “we’ll have data from hundreds of thousands, millions of people at a level that’s unprecedented,” she says. “I think we’re at the cusp of a revolution of treating human learning as science.” http://www.wsj.com/articles/daphne-koller-on-the-future-of-online-education-1433532321
