Last Wednesday, Fourth View hosted it’s first virtual roundtable about online classes. We were joined by Professor Susanna Loeb of Brown University, who co-authored the 2017 Brookings report Promises and Pitfalls of Online Education, along with Christian Barnard of Reason Foundation, who has written about the need to reform the way we finance education.

We started with a simple question: How effective are online classes? Below are some of the highlights of the conversation. To watch the full discussion, click here.
