On KU moving faster now on online education

I took some online classes at JCCC and at Washburn and found them to be beneficial.

What is the point if all KU does is offer online classes otherwise available at JCCC or similar lower-cost institutions -- but expect students to pay KU's higher tuition?

Because only KU offers high-cost high-value elective coursework in several programs of study against which down-market institutions just can't compete. But there's no reason to pay KU top dollar for an intro KU core class taught by adjuncts or grad students when such a class is available from a JC or other institution with lower cost or greater convenience.

If KU wants to compete in the online delivery space against JCCC then KU has to compete on price and value.

The first thing to do is to fire the chancellor. She has not provided the leadership necessary in this field. I was originally very much for her, when she began, but she has not kept up the leadership that is required, and KU is falling very far behind.

We need new leadership at the top NOW.
