Re: “Privatizing UC Instruction

I did not think that I'd see in my relatively short lifetime the full transition of higher education from public institution to industry (complete with a "just in time" contingent faculty), and then to automation and outsourcing. Seems like the aspiration is "do more with less" but for most of us it translates to an imperative "do more, get less." I guess when you have a hammer everything looks conveniently like a nail, and we've got MBAs eagerly pounding all over our economy. But hey at least we can still spend on all those nifty capital projects on campus, right? Then at least we can still look world class. Table tennis on the green roof, anyone?

I can't say my run-ins with online courses have been worth the same as real world classes, but I'm sure they've got all sorts of clever new *tools* to edutain the students.
