I find it odd that the top people worry about "disruptive change" in higher education. To me, it's obvious that the dissemination of LMSs (learning management systems) will increase the value of the traditional liberal arts education. College was never a matter of content; rather it's a matter of socialization. Online everything (college degrees, Facebook, search, retail, and on and on) is a weak stand-in for the fun, productivity gains, and simple joy that people get from face-to-face interaction. The people who benefit from online degrees are people who already have jobs and have established social skills within a community. There will never be "online elite college," ever.
With the changing economic climate, why aren't men adjusting and taking college courses? Some men hate school, have few social skills, and would rather be losers than admit womanish defeat. Better to go die in Iraq or Afghanistan than train as a nurse.
