Digital Diploma Mills. The Automation of Higher Education

Digital Diploma Mills. The Automation of Higher Education

Samenvatting:
Critical analysis of the meaning of the internet for the future of higher education. The author shows how university teachers are losing control over what they teach, how they teach and for what purpose as administrators claim ownership of the course-designs and teaching materials developed by faculty, and try to lower labor costs in the marketing and delivery of courses. Rather than new opportunities for students the online university represents new opportunities for investors to profit while shifting the burden of paying for education from the public purse to the individual consumer
