What’s next? Sending messages to other people without stamps?

As a prof who has been teaching online for eight years now, I always love these kinds of articles where the writer suddenly “discovers” this thing known as learning online. From today’s Washington Post:

Angela
Bostic will get her MBA in August from the University of Maryland
University College, part of a dual master’s degree she is pursuing. She
has never met a professor, has never sat in a classroom and has checked
out the Adelphi campus only once, long after she had enrolled. In fact,
until recently, the 28-year-old graduate student had been studying from
Brussels.

Bostic is among an extraordinarily fast-growing number
of students nationwide and worldwide who are turning to online degree
programs to complete or advance their educations while they work,
decisions that are driven by economics as well as by a society that is
increasingly mobile.
