Rutgers U just announced a new public/private partnership with Pearson, provider of educational technology, content and services, which positions the university to significantly expand lifelong learning opportunities — including undergraduate and graduate degrees available entirely online —while maintaining access to the same level of academic quality that is offered in the traditional Rutgers classroom. Rutgers will work with Pearson to respond to the most rapidly growing segment of the population seeking higher education — adult, part-time learners who, because of work and family obligations, cannot attend traditional on-campus classes. The degrees will be in a wide range of disciplines and initially will focus on the Master’s level.

Online college courses are attracting hundreds of thousands of students, and that's forcing colleges and policymakers to rethink higher education. The online courses may pose a serious challenge to the way institutions deliver a college education.

Science education costs in the United States has risen astronomically. To address these costs, online education models like Coursera and Khan Academy have emerged, opening access to learning and education.
I have the expirience of spending thousands of borrowed dollars on microsoft certification courses with the promise of employment upon completion. The money went and the promised job never came. I will not spend money or time on any course online or face to face unless it comes from a fully acreditted, well established instution that will award college credit toward a degree. Thats my two cents.
Online versions of college courses are attracting hundreds of thousands of students, millions of dollars in funding, and accolades from university administrators. Is this a fad, or is higher education about to get the overhaul it needs?
