But should we care that much about this model given online learning has not really been a main effort of UF especially given their research university status? I think we need to find a way to help more of our community colleges and universities with a strong teaching commitment develop online learning operations that help students begin or continue their college education.
The University of Florida, based on a plan created by the state legislature, started UF Online in 2013. The original business plan was a case study in optimistic enrollment planning and the road-to-r

Following 17 million km of test flights across jungles, mountains and plains, Project Loon has signed agreements with three mobile network operators - Indosat, Telkomsel and XL Axiata - to begin testing balloon-powered Internet over Indonesia in 2016. 

Currently, only about one in three of Indonesia’s 250 million residents is connected to the Internet. Stringing fiber networks or installing and maintaining mobile phone towers across the more than 17,000 islands that make up Indonesia is a significant challenge. Through balloon-to-balloon communication, Project Loon has the capability to transmit signal from areas that are connected to an Internet groundstation and bounce that signal across a constellation of balloons and back down to even the most remote islands. In flight testing, the Loon team has already been able to wirelessly transfer data between individual balloons floating over 100 km apart in the stratosphere, enabling local network operators to extend their Internet service into areas that are too difficult to reach with current technology.

The Indonesian tests will form part of the foundation for our longer term goal of providing a continuous ring of connectivity in partnership with mobile network operators around the globe and, hopefully, bringing the power of the Internet to millions of individuals, wherever they are, for the very first time. Wish us luck!

A new CAP analysis shows that accreditation agency ACICS—along with many other national accreditors—is not sufficiently vetting the institutions that it approves to offer federal student loans.

Will you be providing an overview of other CBE-friendly LMS tools like Flatword Knowledge's tool that they are using with schools like Brandman University and LoudCloud's tool?
Within higher education, we tend to talk about LMS solutions based on an institutional perspective – which systems can serve as the official LMS for an entire institution. While this view is important and forms the basis for my LMS … Continue reading →

+George Station FWK stuff seems to be somewhat similar in nature to Helix, with exception of not doing marketing, enrollment mgt, student services (but CBE in nature w learning platform, w content embedded). Most of the content is FWK decomposed & repurposed textbooks (not all, some is OER). Walled garden.

Is there more information about the competencies associated with ASU's Habitable Worlds class? Has anyone used SmartSparrow as ASU has to create similar learning objects and environments?
