Is the University of Phoenix Setting the Trend for the Rest of Us?
Education technologies used by the University of Phoenix is the focus of a Spokane Journal article. I suggest reading it with this question in the back of your mind - are they us five or ten or twenty years from now (and would that be a bad thing)?
Quoting from the article:
“We’ve moved from a textbook environment to an online resource,” says Paul Green, director of the Spokane campus... The university’s extensive Web site allows students to do much of their required reading and research online, talk with instructors and classmates electronically, do exercises online, and turn in papers and other homework via the Web, among many other functions.
Thanks to the Kept-Up Academic Librarian for spotlighting this article.
