Drawing the Wrong Conclusions

Russell Poulin, Inside Higher Ed, Apr 20, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

So why did the University of Texas TeleCampus shut down? Russell Poulin isn't sure, and draws no conclusion in this article, but he does eliminate several possibilities. It is not because distance education is dead, he argues, and it is not because distance learning consortia are dead. It's not because its services were redundant, nor because its mission was complete. In the end, probably, the reason was money - "They were charged last May with meeting an accelerated timetable for making their organization self-sustaining."
