Edmundson on Online Education

Mark Edmundson has written an Op-Ed in the New York Times on online education that, from where I sit, is strangely out of touch with the cutting edge of online education. Mind you, I don’t know many professors who would rather teach online than onsite, and I don’t know many students who would rather take classes online than onsite. Doesn’t matter. The overwhelming majority of the adult college market right now is online and will be for the rest of history as far as I can tell. The just out of high school crowd is a little different, since for them college is as much a social phenomenon as a learning one.
