You might remember that UT invested millions of $$ and made very brave claims about the power of new technologies to teach larger classes more effectively. Project 2021 was going to be the example all higher ed followed and finally educational technology was going to harness the power of the web to improve access, deliver tailored instruction, and save everyone lots of money in the process. Criticisms at the time were dismissed (I know because I found myself shouted down by the university administration and project team when I raised any!) Well I did cover that part before but was reminded of it all again when I read Dan Robinson’s thoughtful analysis of the data presented early on as justification for this approach. I won’t spoil it for you — you can read it here yourself.
