Melanie commented on MIT to offer Free Online Classes which lead to a Degree

Thank you for this interesting post Alexandra! The concept of having a tuition-free education could be attractive to those wishing to get a degree and those wishing to advance their skills alike. The question then is, for those hoping to receive a degree for their online education, how can their achievement be legitimized? Despite the fact that online programs can be very successful in educating, there is still a stigma that deems it lesser than a physical classroom education. How then could we put online education on par with classroom education? If the answer is to create standards, and how could they be proven?
