Small College Conversations and the Big Purdue / Kaplan Online Learning News

My guess is that reactions from folks who work at smaller schools will fall into 1 of 3 categories:

Category 1: Interesting – but probably not that big a deal for us. Category 2: Interesting – and important for us to understand and discuss. Category 3: Not only not interesting – but another example of the blurring line between the non-profit mission of higher education, and the growing corporate and market-based thinking that ruining this country. The reason that I think that all of us should pay attention is my belief that all of us should be paying attention to online learning. I believe that even small, residentially focused liberal arts institutions can leverage online learning to advance their core mission. This may be through providing opportunities for a more diverse population of students to access the strongest programs and faculty at your school.
