Technology will disrupt traditional education system - PATRICK BEAN AND ANDREW HORSFALL, Biz Community

The current education system is ripe for disruption. Historically, institutions have positioned themselves as knowledge leaders and the primary place to receive expertise to prepare students for the workplace. However, in the age of free online courses from the world's top universities and part-time study sites, such as edX and Coursera, that information is becoming widely available outside the system.Universities are facing a future where students will be able to study online with reputable and internationally recognised institutions for a relatively cheap fee, potentially even free. In the online space, education is becoming more commoditised and there will be a few global winners, dominated by well-known education brands that collaborate with technology companies.
