Learning Online; Learning Offline

At my workplace and far beyond, the debate continues about the value of online teaching and learning. Many profs vehemently disagree with offering online learning opportunities for residential students. Strangely enough though, it seems that those who passionately oppose the online course development are not actually engaged in designing or delivering online courses, so it must be difficult for them to see both sides. I teach ~700 on-campus students and ~900 online students per year, so that puts me in a position to see some of the costs and benefits of each method of teaching and learning. In my experience they are each very unique experiences for profs and students, and each offers enormous, differentiated value.
