In the past, most learning and training was a do-It-yourself endeavour. Schools hired the best teachers. Universities crafted their own courses and curriculum. Companies created their own employee training programmes.
The only exception here were books. Therefore, we built libraries and curated them.
Today, great education need not be created by everybody – it is already out there on the internet as e-books, articles, video lectures and online courses. Institutions merely need to curate this information and they can build themselves world class educational programmes.
What most people haven’t yet realized is that world class education just lies a click away.
