IMHO: This is a bad idea

University of Florida says we didn’t let you in on our first pass but you’ll be admitted IF you take our online classes.  Using online learning as a contingency instead of a preference or need is, IMHO, a really bad idea.  This will be particularly true for the generation of traditional-aged students who think they are getting into UF via “faster, cheaper, easier” classes.  It will be interesting to watch this play out.  Oh, and they made some moms mad in the process; not a good way to start university family relations.
