Education has, in many ways, changed very little for 1,000 years. However, suddenly new delivery formats are springing up: from on-demand video education for individuals, to 150,000 person at a time “MOOC” classes. This month the Caltech forum will explore how education is changing rapidly, both in startups and in traditional institutions.

Where are the lines between “formal” education and “informal education” and “entertainment” now? What will be the role of the traditional universities in this market? Will they be customers for new content? Competitors? What are the technology gaps and content pain points now? What is working well? Where are the entrepreneurial opportunities?   Come to the Forum to hear a wide spectrum of experiences in this rapidly-growing space.
