disappointed with the quality control?
There are a lot of aha moments in this book for anyone in higher education field; many of the things than seem natural in any university today, like the courses numbering and electives system, were a thoughtful response by Harvard to challenges faced at some point in time. Some of those initiatives have their own unintended consequences such as a complete fragmentation of a typical student's college experience and wildly escalating cost structure. Online education promises to solve the challenges of costs of higher education and expanding access, while also preserving the quality of learning experience.
Read also `The Idea of the Digital University' to get another perspective on the challenges to the higher education model and a new vision where more of the university activities are digital and centered around student learning.
