The MIT Enterprise Forum of Atlanta presents Digital Education: Fad or Future of Learning?, featuring a panel of experts moderated by C21U Director Rich DeMillo.

How are the trends in online learning remaking the education landscape for students, teachers and administrators? Is this a game-changing disruptive movement in action or a fad that will fade as challenges are uncovered? Will four-year college on a campus become a thing of the past? Who are the entrepreneurial companies that are enabling the future?

The digital education movement is gathering significant steam, presenting what could be considered the largest potential for change and disruption to our education system in modern memory. Join us to discuss some of the most relevant and exciting topics facing educators and students alike with an all-star panel featuring many names that are shaping the conversation today. We will discuss some of the new models that have emerged and how new startups are partnering (and competing) with traditional institutions for students and mindshare.
