New Tuition-Free 'University of the People' Tries to Democratize Higher Ed

Marc Parry, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Aug 28, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Generally sceptical article from the Chronicle (what else is new?) about the University of the people, which is slated to launch in September with 178 students (out of 2000 applications) and free tuition (though costs could increase in the future, the article states). The author also managed to find a spokes-clone from the Sloan consortium who agrees that most students cannot learn by themselves.
