Harvard to Alums: Donate Your Time (and Money)

TIME IS MONEY: This alma mater isn't reaching out to former students just for money. The NYTimes reports that Harvard is asking alumni who had taken a popular course on ancient Greek heroes to serve as TAs for its online reincarnation. It's an interesting stopgap attempt to address criticisms of MOOCs for lacking human engagement. We await to hear how many sign up, but how's this for an idea: for each course that one TAs for, the school will refrain from soliciting them for money for one year. What do you think?
