Professors Block Online Ed to Keep Their Jobs

    College faculty (excluding those who teach at community colleges) are one of the most pampered, lazy, self-righteous and annoying groups in America. Watching them suffer as technology takes away first their undeserved privileges and then their jobs will be delicious.

    “Others said there had been inadequate consultation with the faculty.”
    Right. Union, heal thyself.

    As a prof retired from a career in Educational Technology – you remember hi tech stuff like overhead projectors – I am amused. And delighted. More seriously, I would point out that here in Australia they have been doing Distance Education for a lot longer and over serious distances at all levels – K through University and that institutions in US wanting to do MOOCs could well do some research studying Australia methods which are often more cost effective. I’m saying apply for a grant to go to Oz and study what institutions actually do in places like the NT and W.A as well as in the more densely populated areas of Australia. I did some research like that here for the Australian government in the 90s to find the most effective forms of Aboriginal distance education and discovered some unexpected winners who were doing more with less. .
