Should we require courses or programs to be labeled 'ONLINE?'

Just thinking out loud here... Should colleges, universities, and/or P-12 schools be required (or encouraged) to indicate on student transcripts that a particular course or program is partly or wholly online?


There could be codes. For example:

  • Wholly face-to-face
  • Face-to-face with some online aspects
  • About equal time online and face-to-face
  • Online with some face-to-face aspects
  • Wholly online
  • I'm not sure this is a good idea. But maybe it is. What's the obligation, if any, to be transparent about the delivery of the learning experience?

    How 'dark horses' flip the script of success and happiness

    What defines a dark horse? The all-important decision to pursue fulfillment and excellence.

    Big Think Books

    When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
