I have created a new TED ED lesson about how technologies and new business educational models to be used in higher education courses. Our TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures continue using this TED Talk in online discussions in Strategic Management, Information Systems, and Management courses.
What do you think about this online education model? Why would you consider or not a tuition-free graduate degree? Why employers would hire or not a MBA graduate from an online university? Search for reports and post your views.

At the online University of the People, anyone with a high school diploma can take classes toward a degree in business administration or computer science — without standard tuition fees (though exams cost money). Founder Shai Reshef hopes that higher education is changing “from being a privilege for the few to a basic right, affordable and accessible for all.”
