Executive Director at Australian School of Applied Management, MAICD
Thanks Greg (and great to be having some interaction again - in some ways we go a long way back!).
This comment you made really resonated with me: 'The other fallacy that has persisted is that students in purely online classes receive less individual attention than their in-class colleagues.' Gosh, that is so true and such an unhelpful generalisation. I think of the individual attention our online programs get, compared to the attention I saw/experienced as an MA student, and it's like comparing a tropical garden with a karst-ridden moor.
It is also unhelpful, as you point out, that online is often treated as the 'less work and more profit' option. To me that should be limited to the time and effort it takes to travel - not to teach and interact with pupils.
