Universities Reshape Online Education
interesting article about "the seismic shift" in online learning that may reshape higher education. Coursera is the year old company that is bringing together the consortium of universities. They expect to offer over 100 free online courses in the fall but admit that there is still a lot to work out. Will students ever get real college credit for the courses? How will they deal with cheating on the online assignments or assessments? My thanks to my colleague, Feff Feinstein, who sent me the link to this story.
