UF President Bernie Machen’s message at a recent board of trustees meeting was that it’s just the beginning. UF has largely concentrated on offering online versions of existing degree programs at sometimes higher prices. Machen suggested that UF should consider different price offerings and programs teaching skills, rather than just offering degrees or certificates.

“The challenge will be, can an institution like ours have a two-pronged approach?” he said. “Can we run Holiday Inn Express as well as Holiday Inn?”

At some point, this kind of discourse has to be self-discrediting, right? It has to be.
