University of the People- NYTimes article

the New York Times profiled Haiti’s University of the People in a recent article (link here).  This is a terrific example of open sourced, crowdsourced, education that uses technology to efficiently deliver education.  It will be interesting to keep an eye on this, and other models like MIT’s open courseware, to see if they can capitalize and capture an audience.

During a time when US higher education tuition rates are rising to absurd levels, could a state organize and deliver an accredited curriculum in a similar manner?
