The Components of Online Education; Higher Education on the Internet
In this paper, Byron Henderson looks behind the scenes at the component drivers creating the wave pattern: demographic, economic, and structural. He examines the rules of production, the kinds of leadership, and the nature of strategies that will condition success. The increasing capitalization of intellectual property, the decreasing need for physical copresence, and the decoupling of the quality of work environment from the campus physical plant are changing all the rules. Understanding these driving forces, and not extrapolating merely from today's waves, is the best way to guide the university's future.
