MOOC On

This is what I’m looking for. When Georgia freakin’ Tech gets into the MOOC game with an inexpensive and accredited program — this one in Computer Science — other schools will have to adapt or close: “All OMS CS course content will be delivered via the massive open online course (MOOC) format, with enhanced support services for students enrolled in the degree program. Those students also will pay a fraction of the cost of traditional on-campus master’s programs; total tuition for the program is initially expected to be below $7,000.”

Given tuition rates that can go up to $50,000 and more for a single year at a four-year private college, I won’t miss ’em when they’re gone. Note to colleges: the real world is still here. Join us. Please.
