Lately, I have been following debates on the state of higher education, particularly as it relates to the capacities opened by the online format. Harvard and MIT have created edX, through which they are offering MOOCs (massive open online courses) to tens of thousands of participants. As a scholar and teacher, I think the fullest discussion about the implications of these developments should take place. To this end, I share here many of the articles (be sure to look at the online comments, too!) I have collected on the subject. I don't do twitter, so this won't be as up to date as it would be if I did, but I'll try to update it now and again as the debate continues.
Update as of 3/15/15: I finally broke down and opened a Twitter account. You can follow me @profmarylewis.
