10 Highly Selective Colleges Form Consortium to Offer Online Courses

Nov 16, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I giggled when I read this. "A group of 10 highly selective colleges has formed a consortium to offer online courses that students enrolled at any of the campuses can take for credit." It is, of course, how you create MOOCs if you're an elitist ivory tower - you open up your courses, but only to each other. Oh, and you don't make them massive. "The software from 2U will give universities a platform for small online undergraduate courses capped at 20 students each." And, of course, it allows students to travel around the world while earning credit from their highly selective school. There's no word yet on whether Club Med membership is included with tuition.
