An analysis will be presented about why, at the institutional level and in particular at the university level, online learning is being introduced. This will be done in the context of a general design approach to steer innovation in education. Costs and financial-benefit issues will be explored, including costing models, measurement of productivity increases and return-oninvestment. Although the article focuses on the university context, it can be predicted that similar issues will soon confront secondary schools.
