Jenkin's critique of online courses
Robert Jenkins has a good article in The Chronicle of Education that basically claims that the motivation for online classes is to cut cost (and increase profits) without concern about quality. Unfortunately, U.S. four-year colleges have increased tuition to the extent that the public is now likely to endorse the latest innovation with little consideration of the consequences. While I think online courses are wonderful, I don't think they substitute for a college experience.
