CFHE paper on costs of higher ed featured on Huffington Post
CFHE’s working paper “The Promises of Online Higher Education: Reducing Costs” recently was the focus of an article on the Huffington Post.
One of the most widely touted claims in the conversation surrounding online higher education is that it will save students, universities and taxpayers big money.
But what the chatter lacks is the real bottom line — that the true costs can often amount to more, not less, costs for all involved.
The Campaign for the Future of Higher Education’s working paper, “The Promises of Online Higher Education: Reducing Costs,” takes a hard look at the facts surrounding the real costs of such courses. For policy makers, educators and students alike, examination of the findings is critical before rushing into a trend that will cost higher education, and those seeking it, dearly.
