Commentary by Stephen Downes

The Chronicle ridicules the idea of corporations granting degrees, but universities should take note. When their funding falls through the floorboards, corporations will be quick to jump into the credentialing game. They won't, though, think of professors as high-paid talent. Teaching staff, like hamburger-flippers, will be disposable, because the real power is in the degree-granting monopoly, not the hoarding (or delivery) of knowledge.
