While these courses offer a viable path for learners, what opportunity do they present for publishers? This panel presents three knowledgeable voices: a university educator and ed tech expert, a developer of an online school, and a publisher of online courses. Together, they will offer advice for how K-12 publishers should approach everything from formatting to content licensing.
