"The deep problem with distance learning in the past is that it took an idea from the university that's least valuable in the university: the lecture.… But the Internet can be used to create a shadow structure for the dorm, the study group, the tutorial system: students teaching students. And the Internet has echo. We know where you've been. We have the technological ability to figure out not only who's learned but who's learned quickly. We don't externalize that feature because we think that's private."


-Andrew M. Rosenfield, JD'78, chair, founder, and CEO, Unext.com; adjunct professor of entrepreneurship, GSB; senior lecturer, Law School; University trustee; in his February 12 lecture, "The Online University," at the Franke Institute for the Humanities.
