Is Alison The Answer To The World's Education Needs?

This Forbes article features a one-to-one interview between Alison CEO and Founder Mike Feerick and Forbes Contributor Peter High. Their in-depth discussion covers Alison’s growth in recent years, the inspiration behind its founding, and the progress it is on track to achieving. Over the course of their conversation they examine the evolving MOOC business model, highlighting how many MOOCs have not yet managed to do what Alison has: shake off old institutional dependencies and over-expensive content production processes.
