    I often wonder why universities dont professionally create, record and distribute course material and videos. The days of 1 teacher teaching a classroom full of students has been replaced with mass distibution. As a web developer Im constantly watching free online tutorials sites that expand my knowledge.

    Love to see a local company doing great! I don't know if Weber State has to pay (probably) for access to their courses for Computing students, but it is an invaluable tool for me as I am pursuing my degree!!!

    As an electrical engineer and 8 years of college I am all for this new trend. I actually think the 21st century world of technology and perhaps extended to other degrees is to bypass the traditional college campus and general education glut and replace it with on-line courses with a minimal requirement of general education. The general education (english, etc...) could be reduced to perhaps 20 hours down from 52 and also allow students to get those general ed classes from the school of their choice. Liberty University would be a great place to get your GE classes. The core tech courses or other core degree courses would be also streamlined to includ just the core necessary course work only. Perhaps on-line offers a BS degree or just a certificate type diploma. I think industry -- especially in the tech industry - is driving this sort of streamlined on-line approach vs the traditional campus experience.

    Moving from Farmington to Draper? DRAPER?? Like they need this down there. We need it here in Davis County. Sad to see them move.
