My Trouble With Mark Edmundson's Trouble With Online Education
...
Thinking about my own personal affection for some of those lectures, I found the central question from last Thursday's New York Times op-ed from University of Virginia professor Mark Edmundson so interesting: ... Can online education ever be education of the very best sort?
Edmundson argues that it cannot be. For Edmundson, the immediacy of a classroom lecture hall can not be brought online because:
...
I get where Edmundson is coming from in setting this model up as the ideal.
...
It was at this point in the article that I realized my troubles with Mark Edmundson's "The Trouble With Online Education."
There is No "Education of the Very Best Sort" For Edmundson to claim that there is an ideal classroom for learning in today's world strikes me as misguided and a bit elitist.
...
Whereas Edmundson maintains the college lecture model as the ideal, online education has been pushing the envelope over the last ten years to create more and better personalized learning for students, giving students choice in instruction, format, time, learning needs, learning styles, and more. Students have greater choice and control over what and how they learn, and greater variety of course work from which to choose.
Edmundson gives high importance to the immediacy of the classroom.

The loudest such worrying so far has been The Trouble With Online Education, a New York Times OpEd by Mark Edmunson of the University of Virginia. As most critics do, Edmundson focussed on the issue of quality, asking and answering his own question: "[C]an online education ever be education of the very best sort?"
Now you and I know what he means by "the very best sort"-the intimate college seminar, preferably conducted by tenured faculty. He's telling the story of the liberal arts education in a selective residential college and asking "Why would anyone take an online class when they can buy a better education at UVA?"
