Beyond Silicon Valley: Online Education in Emerging Markets

I live in Silicon Valley where it’s easy to assume that you’re living at the center of technological innovation. But, as Sarah Lacy reminds us today in TechCrunch, Silicon Valley will probably not realize the promise of e-learning. Rather, it will be investors and entrepreneurs in Brazil, India, South Africa and other emerging markets. Why will they get the job done? Because their educational systems haven’t fully matured. They’re still a work-in-progress. And this creates an environment much more favorable to innovation. You can get the rest of her thinking here.
