[BIO: Audrey Heinesen is director for teaching and learning at Udemy, an online platform. She was previously senior manager of the education division at The New York Times.]

The confluence of technology and education is undoubtedly significant. As we navigate through intense change in education delivery and access, the road ahead can seem uncertain.

“In my role at Udemy, an online platform for teaching and learning, I work every day with a diverse group of individuals creating online courses. Our instructors come from universities, companies and organizations, and arrive at online education for myriad reasons: a new challenge, new students, new opportunities, new income; and, sometimes, out of fear of staying current.”

Given the feedback I have received from professors who teach online, I am personally intrigued by the section “Realistic Time and Resource Commitment.”
