Making Waves: Georgia Tech to Offer Master's in Computer Science, Online, One-Fourth the Cost

By Nancy Pearcey • June 3, 2013, 02:54 PM

Andy Kessler at the Wall Street Journal highlights a major move toward online education:

[Georgia Tech] is making major waves in business and higher education with its May 14 announcement that the college will offer the first online master's degree in computer science -- and that the degree can be had for a quarter of the cost of a typical on-campus degree.

"Many other universities are experimenting with open online courses, or MOOCs, but Georgia Tech's move raises the bar significantly by offering full credit in a graduate program," Kessler writes.

"Sadly," Kessler continues, this experiment is "not without controversy."
