A university professor asks students in his class whether they liked online learning and finds they did not. What's more interesting are the responses in the comments and on Twitter: @karenraycosta: "this isn't really about the quality of #onlinelearning. It's not about evidence. It's about power and the status quo";  @readywriting: "It isn't news that students hate (bad) online learning. Stop conflating (bad)y online learning with good online learning; @LangOnCourse: "Don't judge online teaching based on your informal surveys of students who chose to attend a residential university."
