University of California leaders on Wednesday called for an expansion of online courses to help the 10-campus system contain costs, broaden access and hold down tuition rates. UC President Mark Yudof said the university plans to launch several online education initiatives in the next few months, including an incentive program to encourage faculty members to create digital versions of high-demand, entry-level courses.  “It’s no secret that UC has hit a wall with regard to traditional instructional methods,” Yudof said at the UC Board of Regents meeting. “The finances simply no longer exist to support the old model of instruction in many ways.”
