I will be honest: I would love to be a freelance professor, offering courses online and earning whatever I can earn. This requires two things: a teaching environment, and accreditation. I've already built the first; all that's lacking is the second. So when I read an article like this, about freelance instructors, I'm wondering who is allowed to do it and how they are accredited. If I apply for a job at a university there's a blunt refusal because I don't have a PhD, but at StraighterLine your expertise appears to be more important. And a number of colleges grant credit for the courses. So there's hope for me going forward.
