Scarlet Macaw: Online Credit Questions in the Media: Duke, California Bill, Wisconsin, San Jose State University and Udacity, WUaS just communicated with two, key, California Assembly legislators yesterday
Govind, WUaS new board member, suggested sharing this link with you:
"Duke U.'s Undergraduate Faculty Derails Plan for Online Courses for Credit"
"California Bill Seeks Campus Credit for Online Study" -
"College Degree, No Class Time Required: University of Wisconsin to Offer a Bachelor's to Students Who Take Online Competency Tests About What They Know" -
"Get Ahead with College Credit" - Udacity and San Jose State University -
I've added all of these related, relevant press in 'The College at WUaS,' - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/The_College_at_World_University_and_School.
It's an exciting time for online, university education, and I suspect online accreditation will become legally possible, and potentially in California.
Assuming online credit goes through in California, as the NYT's article suggests, WUaS just communicated with two, key, California Assembly legislators yesterday about becoming a Creative Commons' licensed, online University, which will create a lot of good, academic jobs in California, as well as around the world, in our seeking to become the MIT / Harvard of the Internet, and in all languages and countries.
