I'm married to a pediatric oncologist / hematologist, so dinnertime conversation is often about when things go really really wrong. The good news about pediatric cancer is most kids now get better. But even in cases with good outcomes extended hospital stays are not uncommon, and relapses and new diagnoses do occur for college kids.

Dear Dr. Matloff. Thank you for contributing to our community's discussion about the pros and cons of MOOCs.  I thought that your critique of the limitations of the current MOOC offerings in your Bloomberg opinion column Dumbed-Down Math and Other Perils of Online College made many valid points about the challenges of bringing a college course to scale.

I've become enamored with the iPad mini as an e-learning device. The iPad mini, which is 7.9 inches tall and 5.3 inches wide, fits nicely in one hand.  It is also a quarter lighter and half the weight of a standard size iPad, making reading or watching course videos a pleasure.
