Sebastian Thrun: World's First Massive Online Degree Program Starts Today

Commentary by Stephen Downes

They write: ">A total of 2,360 students applied within the 3-week application period. This is about 75% more than normally apply for the on-campus degree over the duration of an entire year. Of this pool, 375 have been accepted and start today." Not very massive. Also, we will note that they have dropped the word 'open' from the headline. Which makes us wonder what it is that makes it "first". Hundreds of thousands of Indira Gandhi National Online University graduates will want to know.
