Too much of an online thing?

Writing about web page http://media.www.thecurrentonline.com/media/storage/paper304/news/2007/08/27/Opinions/I.Could.Have.Gone.To.The.University.Of.Phoenix-2938507.shtml

Here’s a fascinating article by a student at the University of Missouri at St Louis in the US. Money quote:-

This semester, 75 percent of my classes are online and 100 percent of that is not by choice. There are classes which are only offered online and if I want my degree, I have to take these classes. I did not come to UMSL to stay at home and take classes. I came to this university to be part of a university.

Food for thought as we mull over more and better ways to digitise the audio and video from an event and make it available for download.
