New York Times Enters Distance Learning Market

Commentary by Stephen Downes

The new York Times is partnering with several colleges to provide single-seminar and multiple-session online courses. The cousres - which won't be cheap - will access customized content packages. "These packages will provide access to special packages of content - summaries of articles, interactive maps, video, audio, graphs - on a wide range of topics (the European Union, nanotechnology and so forth)." Interesting to see EDUCAUSE vice-president Diana Oblinger commenting favorably on the initiative, and especially the content packages prepared for teachers. See also Liberal Education Today.
