    Quality and delivery without diminishing effective educational outcomes (acknowledging cost effectiveness) ought to remain a paramount factor going forward…

    This article presents high priced text books as a “bug”. From the point of view of many in the educational system, its actually a “feature”. Many a professor requires the text book they wrote – and, presumably, get some royalties on – for their required course. Its a win for everybody but the students.

    While these avenues may be good in themselves for various limited purposes, they are parasitic on the existing system of higher education. It is professors who received their education within this system, acquired their reputations within it, and enjoy financial and academic security within it. It is universities and colleges funding it. Consequently, these online ventures cannot serve as a substantial and comprehensive alternative to system of higher education that I read so many conservatives wishing for various ideological and fiscal reasons.

    I have only one question. When is Professor Mead going to offer a class. I offer myself as the first student to enroll.
