What on-line learning can’t teach you

This article from the Chronicle of Higher Education takes a hard look at the problems of on-line learning.  As one recruiter sums up:

“I’m sure online classes are fine for teaching certain specific concepts. But that’s not really what we’re interested in. We can teach those concepts ourselves. What we really value in a college education is the interpersonal skills that students develop while they’re in school. Online classes just don’t teach those.”
