David Wiley says of this work, "is the first piece of empirical work I am aware of that demonstrates clearly that a distance learning program can simultaneously (1) provide a significant public good by publishing opencourseware and (2) be revenue positive while doing it." The dissertation reads like a dissertation, but it's well written, not too long, and has lots of pictures (making me think maybe I should get a PhD for this (how 'bout it David? I'll fly out there and defend it...)). Anyhow, all pettiness aside, congrats to Justin Johansen, who is full value for his newly minted degree.
