The Minerva Project – Online and Experiential Learning

While I have you, there was a really interesting debate in Mid-April on NPR about what shape online learning will take in the near future and one of the debaters was creating a school called “The Minerva Project” which he’s trying to leverage into the online version of Harvard or Yale.  It’s affiliated with the Claremont Consortium in California and I think the program’s pretty cool.  Not sure if you’d heard it or not  and this is more for fun, but I thought you might be interested in what they had to say and what other people in the industry are thinking about in regards to what we do.
