Abstract

This paper explores the push/pull between two competing forces impacting online learning. Applying a business model, with its emphasis on cost-effectiveness, scalability, and modularization has been identified as the conservative (pull) force. The push (or progressive force) is the use of Web 2.0 technologies to transform education into a student-centered learning community. Understanding these competing forces is needed to function in the new landscape of higher education.
