David Wiley presents this as a prediction, but I think that what he is really offering is a sustainability plan for Open Educational Resources: "These second generation projects are integrated with distance education offerings, where the public can use and reuse course materials for free (just like first generation OCWs) with the added option of paying to take the courses online for credit (there is no way to earn credit from the first generation OCWs)." Stephen Carson, though, comments, "suggesting that for-credit online learning is the solution might ultimately be tying more sandbags to the balloon."
