This article talks specifically about online college, MOOCs, e-textbooks.
"You can’t blame Christensen and his co-writers for all the dumb things said and done in the name of disruption. But you can spot some unsavory habits of mind in their prescriptions. For one thing, they possess an almost utopian faith in technology: online or “blended” learning; massive open online courses, or MOOCs; cool health apps; and so on. Their convictions seem sincere, but they also coincide nicely with the interests of the Silicon Valley venture-capital crowd. If you use technology to disrupt the delivery of public services, you open up new markets; you also replace human labor with the virtual kind, a happy thought for an investor, since labor is the most expensive line item in all service-industry budgets."
"Many well-meaning philanthropic disruptors have taken that advice to heart, and the results reveal something George Orwell pointed out, which is that stale phrases mechanically repeated have dangerous political effects. It is too soon to see how disruption will play out in public-health and government agencies, but what it has done to public schools is now becoming clear. Online charter schools, for instance, have enriched many an entrepreneur but appear to yield abysmal outcomes, including lower test scores and higher drop-out rates than those found in brick-and-mortar schools."
"Christensen and his fellow disruptors are making a category error. Not all civil services need to be hyper-efficient and bargain-basement and in a state of permanent revolution, especially when the private entities tasked with disrupting government operate largely outside public view. What the institutions of a democracy should do is attend to their many disparate constituents as effectively and inclusively and openly as possible without getting creatively destroyed in the process."
Remember Dr Gary Michelson offered Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa $10,000,000 if he hired "disruptive nokill" Ed Boks. Mayor hired Ed Boks without checking out his background. Ed Boks came in and disrupted LA Animal Services. This caused more animals to die, the employees revolted, Department was sued (by me and they settled), people quit... Ed Boks started a war which harmed animals. Disruption = Destruction.

How Silicon Valley Killed Disruption - Business Insider
The word has been bantered about since 1995, enough already. Gary Michelson and 20 Million Minds are not even disrupting anything. He made his stupid disruption video February 2014, almost 20 years later. Why not talk about cassette audio tapes instead of CDs or MP3's? Gary: "I have a great disruptive idea! Let's have college classes on super 8 track cassettes!! Isn't this a great idea?" Ass kissers: "Brilliant! You are years ahead of your time! When do I get my check?"
Gary Michelson is 20 years behind on technology and basic words. He is the last person to be talking about advanced technology since he lives in the stone age. He looks like a total fool in his 20 Million Minds "disruption" video. Even his videographer is 20 years behind the times. She got paid so she's happy. Dr Gary Michelson should really stick with what he's good at, i.e. stealing peoples ideas and patenting them.
