The University of California is moving ahead with a plan to develop a new batch of online courses that could eventually lead to the country’s first highly selective, Internet-based degree program for undergraduates. The UC Office of the president is raising money from private donors so faculty can begin developing 25 to 40 online courses, starting with those in highest demand, including calculus, chemistry and physics. It’s unclear when students could enroll. UC already offers 1,250 online courses, which Edley said could serve as a starting point for a more sophisticated, high-tech approach that gives students easier access to instructors and classmates.
