The college business model, says Mitch Daniels, is all wrong and deserves to be toppled. He will be watching closely a Georgia Institute of Technology plan to offer an online master's degree in computer science next year. It will cost just $7,000, versus as much as $60,000 for the traditional course. Source: Bloomberg

Georgia Tech’s Online Master of Science in Computer Science (OMS CS) earned its highest endorsement to date as President Barack Obama cited the program as a nationwide model for controlling the rising costs of higher education.

Three graduates of Georgia Tech’s College of Computing earned inclusion this week to MIT Technology Review’s “35 Innovators under 35,” an annual list recognizing people driving the next generation of technological breakthroughs.

The disruption may be approaching, though, as Georgia Tech, which has one of the country’s top computer science programs, plans to offer a MOOC-based online master’s degree in computer science for $6,600 — far less than the $45,000 on-campus price, writes the NYT’s Tamar Lewin.
