Small College Conversations and the Big Purdue / Kaplan Online Learning News - Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Ed

My guess is that reactions from folks who work at smaller schools will fall into 1 of 3 categories: Category 1: Interesting - but probably not that big a deal for us. Category 2: Interesting - and important for us to understand and discuss. Category 3: Not only not interesting - but another example of the blurring line between the non-profit mission of higher education, and the growing corporate and market-based thinking that ruining this country. The reason that I think that all of us should pay attention is my belief that all of us should be paying attention to online learning. I believe that even small, residentially focused liberal arts institutions can leverage online learning to advance their core mission. This may be through providing opportunities for a more diverse population of students to access the strongest programs and faculty at your school. https://www.insidehighered.com/blogs/technology-and-learning/small-college-conversations-and-big-purdue-kaplan-online-learning-news
