Should we do more courses online?
What do you think about MNSCU's plan to do more online courses? Is that a path we should take? Does it really save money?
In hopes of saving tax dollars and reaching more students, state leaders in Minnesota say they plan to offer a substantially higher percentage of their courses online in the next seven years.
Tim Pawlenty, the state’s governor, and David Olson, the chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, held a series of press events today announcing their intention to offer 25 percent of college credits online by 2015.
Only about 9 percent of course credits delivered during the past academic year were received through online education.
