    Good article. Yeah, it's a wide market out there. Even private universities in Spain started increasing their prices per credit but still a bargain overall. Distance learning is getting better and better.

    The way I read this was that universities need to consider economies of scale and instead of providing their own decentralized instruction look to leverage a broader offering like the Coursera type product. It may result in a better product for the students and lower costs as well.
