It’s no secret that the digital revolution has made its way into the classroom. Twice before I’ve written on how this has effected theological education (see “The Changing Nature of Theological Education” and “The Changing Nature of Theological Education, Part 2.” Yet, the embrace of technology is hardly limited to Christian seminaries.
Recently, I read a lengthy interview with Pluralsight CEO, Andrew Skonnard. You can read the 7-part series here. Pluralsight is an online training program for software developers. For a low monthly fee ($30/mo for basic and $50/mo for pro), you get access to Pluralsight’s entire online course library. If you’re serious about learning programming, it’s not a bad deal at all. And lest you be concerned about the quality of the training you get, Pluralsight began as a bricks and mortar institution that went completely digital after realizing the earnings potential was much greater with an online model.
