Online learning on the uptake in international education - Chuck Chiang, Business in Vancouver

We’ve reached a tipping point, warns industry consultant. While Canada’s bricks-and-mortar institutions have not seen too much impact from online courses and schools, the figurative “tipping point” for students’ acceptance of online education appears to have been reached, says Mike Henniger, vice-president of sales and marketing at ICEF, an international education marketing and recruitment strategy consultancy. Examples include Udacity and MicroMasters, which offer free or paid courses in certain sectors where employers demand a certain skill set. Udacity even guarantees students will find a job upon completing the online program or receive a full refund.
