Good column on the future of online education

I enjoyed Andy Kessler's column Professors Are About to Get an Online Education.  He writes about some of the recent experiments in the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).  There has been a lot of push back because MOOCs threaten teacher's livelihood.  Andy makes a great point:

I was upbraided for not understanding the plight of teachers. The plight of students, as is too often the case in discussions of education, didn't seem to rate the same concern.

If you are interested in the future of MOOCs the column is worth reading.
