College leaders need to act more quickly if they don't want to be swept aside by emerging technologies, Smith School professor Henry C. Lucas Jr. argues in a new book.
Lucas is both a participant in and analyst of the online education revolution. He created the Smith School's first massive open online course (MOOC) on disruptive technologies, and he has taught in the school's online MBA program from the start.
His book, “Technology and the Disruption of Higher Education,” published in October 2015, is intended to serve as a wake-up call for traditional educators. “I became a convert because I saw the possibility of creating a quality product,” Lucas says. /DJ/
