Thank you, WaPo!
Larry Linville sent me a link to this Washington Post article from Sunday's paper. It's nice to see media coverage of online learning that addresses realistically the challenges of online learning. (In fact, I'd have liked to see the author describe the ways that online learning is HARDER than classroom learning--but of course, we also don't want to scare people off!) It was also great to see that the author pointed out that students may get more interaction with their professor and fellow students than in a face-to-face classes, since many people assume the opposite.
