I'm going to do a presentation on University of the People for the TLT-Group this afternoon. The TLT people have gotten a Home Base Web Page together at http://tlt.gs/UnivofPpl. From talking with Steven Gilbert as we planned this session I gather we may be talking about where a "college education" is situated. Is a college an institution with dorms and a football field? Can we say we've gotten a college education if we haven't visited a campus? Can we say we've gotten a college education if we haven't engaged in synchronous experiences with our teachers and fellow students? Since I've been teaching online since 1996, I've seen learning take place in all kinds of circumstances, but I may have to back it up for others.
