ONLINE EDUCATION UPDATE: ASU Pushes MOOCS into the Mainstream. “Arizona State University is partnering with MOOC provider edX on a freshman year program that doesn’t require any application or upfront costs. Students only pay— $200 per credit—once they pass the courses. They’ll also receive full university credit.” While I agree with the article’s skepticism that this will be some sort of panacea, it does show that online education is growing and will likely replace portions of traditional college education, especially general ed. courses.
