3.) Versatility – Increased availability of free learning tools for students, such as the new school “University of the People.”
4.) Access – Student populations who may not do well in traditional classroom settings can thrive in an online environment
5.) Price – Many new online platforms are increasingly affordable, a welcome change in higher education.
