"But the deals Coursera announced Tuesday may well prove to be an inflection point for online education, a sector that has traditionally been dominated by for-profit colleges known mostly for their noxious recruitment practices and poor results. That's because the new partnerships represent an embrace of web-based learning from across the top tier of U.S. universities. And where the elite colleges go, so goes the rest of academia."

University of Pennsylvania School of Arts and Sciences has #gonegoogle

We're thrilled to hear (http://goo.gl/0cuAN) that the UPenn students currently piloting Google Apps for Education are enjoying the ride. All graduate and undergraduate students in SAS and the College of Liberal and Professional Studies will move to Gmail this summer, and all incoming freshman will have Apps accounts before they arrive on campus.

Chris Mustazza, director of Social Sciences Computing and Student Technology, hopes that mail will just be the start: "Our overall plan goes much beyond email -- we're planning on actively seeking out ways that the applications included with Google Apps can benefit students through facilitating collaboration and by enhancing courses."
