1. WonkBlog @ the Washington Post: A 10-part series on "Why the Tuition is Too Damn High?"

2. "The MOOC That Roared" Georgia Tech offers a masters in CS for $6,600.

As an academic and father of two kids who I still need to put through college, this is an important subject.

There are a lot of things that MOOCs still have to work out (how do you replace physical wet labs? How do you grade non-multiple choice questions? How do you ensure no cheating is taking place?), but it seems very possible that tuition won't increase at the rate that it has been or may even deflate.
