Free Learning

Tony Karrer

In the Business of Learning , I compared publishing and learning. Big publishers are having problems as the cost of distribution goes towards zero and as that brings along a ton of competition from the low end. But all major publications have limitations in that because of the cost, they have to go after large audiences and they need to stay at higher level topics. They can't afford to go into depth in niche areas because the costs would be too high for the return.

Mark Oehlert

OCW : . So we can move from education to training to means of production for either free or something that is so low cost as compared to what the cost would've been 5 or 10 years ago that the price appears at least to be trending to the free. . Where does that leave you vendors with traditional (and by that I mean old) business models? I read my browser tabs like tea leaves I think.
