Book Review: "Higher Education in the Digital Age"

By: Melinda Mechur Karp

Abstract

In her review of Higher Education in the Digital AgeCCRC researcher Melinda Mechur Karp praises the book for its readability but does not fully share the author's optimism about the potential for online learning to bring about positive changes while cutting costs in the postsecondary sector. In particular, she cautions that online learning has the potential to cause greater stratification between the haves and have-nots in higher education.
