Got a Computer? Get a Degree.
Last week, Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced a new nonprofit partnership to offer free online courses. Those who complete the course will get a certificate of mastery and a grade, but no official credit.
Should Harvard and M.I.T. offer credit for these courses and even allow students to obtain their degrees online? Indeed, doesn't it make more sense for elite colleges and universities to do this?
