Abstract

Reviews the way in which publicly funded higher education controls access to learning and considers the implications for privately funded alternatives and workplace structures for learning. Considers the impact of technology on education delivery and costs as well as increased opportunities for flexible access, changes to workplace learning and availability of a wider range of services. Examines the strategic considerations of investing in higher education and in particular, competitive challenges presented by both existing institutions and new education providers.
