Online degrees have the potential to make higher education more affordable, flexible, and accessible. Some MOOC-based degree programs have managed to cut the cost of a master's degree by 50% or more, as compared to traditional on-campus programs. Such dramatic price reductions are thanks in part to the scalable and cost-saving elements of online learning. This panel session will explore questions of scale as they relate to online degree programs, including: What are the current limitations to offering online degrees or credit-bearing courses to large groups of learners? How big is too big? What kinds of solutions - technological, operation, political, or otherwise - will allow universities reach more learners with credit-bearing and degree-bearing programs? Ultimately, what does higher education look like at scale?
