Internet courses are monologues. True learning is a dialogue.
PM - An opinion piece from the NYT. Use of sexist language ("with his sensitivity..." - "he knows he’s doing something right. From there he folds what he has learned into his teaching, adjusting his course...") and a simple view of what 'is' online education shows how far parts of America are behind the 'real world' and how much further we have to go to get people to see that online education can be so much more. The writer has obviously not had a positive experience with online learning, perhaps they should try some online courses from other institutions as the interaction they describe is certainly possible in an online environment.
