An Accredited Open Source On Line University; The Commons
The individual parts already exist for the creation of a free or near free Accredited Open Source On Line University: eBooks, distance learning, including video lectures, automated test taking and correction, on line gathering to exchange ideas. The only impediment are the accrediting agencies themselves as they seek to protect the high priced education system that serves fewer and fewer and is not sustainable economically. What will it take to remove or convince these agencies to embrace education for the common good at a price that everyone can afford?
