The University System of Georgia and big university systems in nine other states have announced a joint partnership with a large educational technology company to offer massive open online courses, or MOOCs.
Reflecting the national trend to outcomes-based education funding, Georgia's public colleges will now earn dollars based on how many students earn diplomas
Andrea Stanfield's insight:
Here we go, Georgia!
I am interested to see how this works for the state I work in. In the past, I've worked in the technical college system and the university system. When funding based on enrollment was the formula, I saw many students who were at the wrong school - students enrolled in a 2-year college in the university system whose goals could have been met by the technical college down the road. With funding based on enrollment, who was going to tell these students to go to another school, even if it was in the state system?
Colleagues fear we'll be pressured to inflate grades. That's not what I've gleaned from the various interviews, speeches, and articles I've seen about this issue, but we'll all have to wait and see.
