I have written a few pieces on the higher education landscape including interviews with some of the key players such as the Coursera founders Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng as well as Chip Paucek, co-founder and CEO of 2U.

I had the chance to talk with Anant Agarwal, President of edX about the first lessons learnt and how edX contributes to changing higher education in general and its economics in particular.
