What I've learned about online education:

1) People don't just want information. They want inspiration, friendship, and accountability.

2) Self-paced courses don't usually work because transformative learning can only happen with a group of peers.
On the Internet, your rate of learning is limited by discipline — not access to information.

But what you gain in speed, you lose in community.

You read alone. You scroll Twitter alone. You listen to podcasts alone.

We need more group learning experiences.
