Online Course No Match for Ursinus Teaching

Associate Professor of Politics Jonathan Marks signed up for an online course and learned why MOOCS (massive open online courses) won’t replace faculty/student interaction. He writes about his experience in the online Inside Higher Education. He writes, “At Ursinus College, where I  teach, the faculty and administration work individually and collectively to help  our students cultivate judgment, the capacity to decide what to think or how to  act in areas, like health policy, where no formula can generate the right  answer.”
