Robert Skiff on The Revolution in Online Learning (1)

Today’s interview features Robert Skiff, Ed.D., founder and president of Oplerno, “an online global educational institution dedicated to transforming higher education.”


In our conversation, we talk about the state of higher ed, philosophies of education, the role of money in education, and the ideas of Michel Foucault, Pierre Bourdieu and Suicidal Tendencies.


Rob’s dissertation details the problems of higher education, including the disenfranchisement of both teachers and students, and chronicles his attempt at a solution as he conceived and built Oplerno. It is available on Amazon and is well worth the read. Feel free to comment below on the controversial topics we cover in this episode.
