re: comment from Bdavies
Thanks for the link. This could be a good model to follow for all universities and not just for those serving regions where commuting is impractical. One thing that I note is that the tuition is very similar for the online and oncampus credit hour. This may stem from the view that colleges sell the credits which represent the value. Why not charge for the actual cost involved in the online. Once setup charges are covered, this charge should be quite low, probably lower than community colleges, to pay for the onsite testing and tutoring. We could then leave it up to the student to choose paying at current levels for the "classic teaching experience" or at greatly reduced levels for the online learning. Even students attending on-campus classes could decide to take some classes on online to save costs (and perhaps get a better education when the professor teaching the current class is a "dud".
