Online education radically transformed the long held notions of time and space as it related to educational delivery. We saw commercials highlighting a working parent attending an MBA class in their pajamas. Schools promised compressed timeframes that allowed for a faster time to completion, and extreme flexibility was promised allowing us to fit classes into an already hectic life. That wave is cresting and rolling back out to sea, but its legacy is that it forced everyone to re-think when and where learning could happen, and how fast a degree could be earned. The next wave will challenge those same notions, and force us to rethink that paradigm again, but how exactly that happens could surprise you.
