I knew the U of Phoenix was a joke...

Stacey Clark, 32, an office manager in East Wenatchee, Wash., enrolled in online courses in April and was delighted to receive A’s in her first courses, she said. Later, Ms. Clark decided her instructors were too disengaged to criticize her work. One returned a 2,500-word essay on performance-enhancing drugs with an A but not one comment, she said.

“You’re not learning from an actual teacher, you’re teaching yourself,” Ms. Clark said.
The corporate model for education -- ever-expanding enrollment -- is totally at odds with any serious educational institution, which must base what actually happens in the classroom for students as the means for "success."

I hope the University of Phoenix, "Ottawa" University, and "Walden" University -- which apparently chose the name of Garry Trudeau's faux-university in "Doonesbury" -- I hope they all fall into the dustbin of history. Their institutional philosophy hates instructors, hates students, and hates learning, which takes time.
