Phoenix Rises

Florence Olsen, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Oct 28, 2002
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good overview of the University of Phoenix, noted for its online course delivery, including enrollment statistics and demographics. The article contaions a number of interesting tidbits: the university, for example, is not concerned about using streaming video "because it doesn't work anyways." To create social interaction, the university creates teams of students. And the next major trend in online learning at the university seems to be simulations, used first in the MBA programs but not being adopted elsewhere.
