Virtual Professional Development

One of the great things about working in online education is the ability to see what is going on in other industries as well as in K-12 and Higher Ed.  I had the pleasure of speaking with Susan Munson of Fixed Income LIVE! They have a pretty cool story. 

As margins for the big investment houses have decreased, so has the 'free' education materials they provided to the fixed income market.  This leaves a pretty big gap that can easily be filled if someone creates very high quality educational materials online.  Enter Fixed Income LIVE!  More to come but it is fascinating to watch a great company come in to fill a market niche through virtual learning.
