VIVA LA REVOLUCION: Bill Keller describes his worries in the NYTimes about the impact of Sebastian Thrun's online AI class, slated to begin on October 10 at elite universities. EdSurgents know that half-hearted experiments are doomed to fail -- and so we're intrigued to watch how Sebastian and colleague Peter Norvig are structuring their program. According to a recent Twitter update (@aiclass) each lesson will be a mere 2 to 5 minutes long and there will be about 2 hours of lessons each week. There are other virtual-and-brick mashups going on, notably how 2Tor is extending master's degree programs at three universities. Interesting details from different vantage points here.
