In keeping with the trends discussed at Learning Environments for Tomorrow, we came across an interesting article over in the Wall Street Journal that you might be interested in.
Skeptics worry that online learning will destroy the “college experience,” which requires that students be at a geographical place (school), interacting with one another and their professors.
