Knowledge, Learning, Community
From the article: "Online enrollment jumped from 1.98 million in 2003 to 2.35 million the following year, accounting for 7 percent of postsecondary education, according to Eduventures, a Boston firm that studies trends in education." I love the openly biased journalism in the second half of the story as the author cites unnamed "critics" to slam online learning, says obliquely that recently closed e-universities "did not offer what some students wanted" and then (blatantly falsely) asserts that "most elite schools have looked down their noses at online degrees." Amazing. But we're supposed to distrust online content, and trust the professional media. As if. Via University Business.
