The future of education will not only be adaptable, it will track your results and keep you accountable for your growth. A lot of the changes we are seeing come down to a difference between learning and the system we've called "Education" for a long time. When you learn something, you internalize it not memorize it. There is a very big difference.

The biggest hole I see for most people in their online academy is a lack of engagement. There is an expectation that it's just on the end-user to figure it out and take full responsibility for actually learning. It's true that at some level, they have to commit, but how easy it is just to get caught up in life and forget to come back.
