Summary
"Examining cases in educational technology from computer assisted instruction to MOOCs, this volume shows how social interests frame reform programs and realign organizational and pedagogical strategies around them to produce a particular environment for change in higher education. Technology is a contingent product rather than a driver of such changes, suggesting that the politics of reform in higher education is not a struggle against technology, but for it, and that the critique of online education could be re-imagined as a basis for innovation"--
