Online education will run traditional universities out of business, says Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen. Prof. Christensen is the father of the theory of “disruptive innovation,” which posits that certain kinds of cheaper, usually inferior innovations change an industry not by serving current consumers better, but by greatly broadening the audience willing and able to consume that product or service. Higher education, was among the industries that “for several centuries was not disrupted,” but “online learning has put a kink in that.”
