Can an online teaching tool solve one of higher education's biggest headaches?
Carnegie Mellon University has a problem. It's a good one, this time — unlike when it lost dozens of researchers and scientists to Uber. The university's new problem is not one of lack but of excess: Too many students are interested in taking a popular computer science course, and there's not enough physical space in the classroom to accommodate them all. Rather than move the course to a football stadium, the Pittsburgh-based university plans to open the course up to more students by moving the majority of its instructional content from the classroom to the Internet. But it's not just uploading a series of lectures and calling it an online course.
