Taking the Arts Online - Carl Straumsheim, Inside Higher Ed

Online learning platforms are out of tune with creative arts education, according to the ed-tech start-up Kadenze. Its platform, which launches today, aims to become a hub for online courses in art, design, music and other disciplines underrepresented online. Those courses have proven challenging to teach to an audience in dozens, let alone the hundreds or thousands, as faculty members struggle to translate face-to-face instruction to an online setting or evaluate students based on highly personal work. As a result, massive open online course platforms often feature lineups heavy on courses in which student performance can be determined with quizzes and peer-graded writing assignments. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/06/16/kadenze-launches-online-education-platform-creative-arts-courses
