Semester Online: university consortium offering small online courses for credit


Starting next fall, 10 prominent universities, including Duke, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Northwestern, will form a consortium called Semester Online, offering about 30 online courses to both their students — for whom the classes will be covered by their regular tuition — and to students elsewhere who would have to apply and be accepted and pay tuition of more than $4,000 a course.

The revolution is here my friends. In a world of iPads and constant access to Internet, don’t you find it funny that education wasn’t more thoroughly changed before now?
