Commentary by Stephen Downes

Well, if James Madison University can offer credit for a course in a box sold at the local computer shop, how much longer can it be before it (or some other university) can offer credit for informal learning generally? "The partnership marks the first time a university in the United States has offered credit to students who complete a Rosetta Stone program, according to Cathy Quenzer, the company’s senior director of education." This is the sort of thing that could take off in a hurry, with universities signing all kinds of special deals with content and service providers (for, of course, a piece of the action).
