Inside Digital Learning

A new report touts the virtues of online education at some of the nation's most discussed programs. But a wide range of experts think more research could be fruitful, as you'll see in our latest roundup.

Below: Josh Kim recommends a must-read book, we report from the ASU-GSV technology conference, and a Views piece challenges an accreditor's approach to online legal education.

This week we found a creative course that's connecting engineering students in Michigan and Ireland. If you're teaching a creative course of your own, or just want to drop us a note, get in touch.

Also, don't forget -- we're on Twitter. If you are too, come find us.
