Online learning advocates have always made big promises and sweeping statements – but more than 20 years on where are we? Richard Garrett of OBHE takes a global look at the myths and realities of online learning.
Richard Garrett is Director of the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education (OBHE). Supported by Universities UK and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, OBHE quickly became self-funding, and in 2010 became part of i-graduate, the higher education market research firm. i-graduate is now part of Tribal Group, the education technology and services company. OBHE retains its independent voice, and is a trusted source of intelligence on higher education innovation around the globe. Richard is also Chief Research Officer at Eduventures, a higher education research and consulting firm, based in Boston, USA. Eduventures is part of NRCCUA.
