Gen Ed Discounting or Devaluing? - Kellie Woodhouse, Inside Higher Ed

University of Akron plans to cut the cost of its general education courses by 86 percent and begin delivering them primarily online in an effort to both increase enrollment and respond to calls from the state’s governor to make college more affordable for Ohioans. The university is publicizing that by charging $50 per credit hour -- down from $359 per credit hour for an in-person general education class on the college’s main campus -- students who enroll in the GenEd Core Pilot Program will pay half as much as they would for a general education class at a community college. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/04/17/university-akron-offers-introductory-courses-online-86-percent-discount
