Despite some professors' discomfort, online ed here to stay - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

Henry Lucas, a faculty chair at the University of Maryland’s Smith School of Business and author of Technology and the Disruption of Higher Education: Saving the American University, argues faculty must come around to online education to keep their universities alive. For the Washington Post, Lucas writes schools that do not embrace technology-enhanced education, and do so with strong faculty at the helm, will go out of business as students flock to more convenient and affordable programs. Lucas sees faculty as the ones who most have to change in favor of online education and the ones most resistant to it, urging administrators to go around them, if necessary.
