teaching and learning What is Happening with Online Learning ? In 2011, MIT announced free courses online -- sending a message to all of higher education. Academia is following with caution and reservations. Is online learning just a fad?

Is it as effective as face-to-face?

Are online courses comparable in quality ?
Who cares?

What's at stake?

What are the consequences of action, or inaction? Who cares? In a single generation, our Nation has fallen from 1st place to 12th place in college graduation rates for young adults...a significant problem as 63% of jobs will require some college or better by 2018. Online learning has the potential to... Increase access to education
Reduce the cost of education What's at stake? If online learning is less effective than the face-to-face classroom, our education system could be damaged and students left behind. 2010 Department of Education

Online learning appears to be as effective as conventional classroom instruction, not more so. “The effectiveness of online learning approaches appears
quite broad across different content and learner type” from undergraduate to graduate and professionals. Consequences of Action or In-Action? As technology pervades out society...
public colleges and universities are at risk becoming obsolete...if they do not adapt...to changing demographics and market forces...and the expectations of students. Incumbent on 4 year institutions to find new and creative ways - based in part on maximizing the potential of education related technology - to address issues of access, relevance, and cost. Association of Public Land Grant Institutions & Sloan Foundation 2009 study Academia's concerns: It takes more time to develop online courses.
