Inferring from the fact (among others) that "[m]any students ... show up at college (or junior college) unprepared to learn, unable to manage time and having failed to master basics like math and English," that "[c]olleges need to improve online courses before they deploy them widely," doesn't reflect a deeply considered position on the question at hand. Does anyone (anyone at all) believe that moving courses online is the solution to this problem? The editorial amounts to the banal observation that many students are unprepared for online courses. The author might as well have added that many students aren't prepared for college. The problems are not the same, and the solution is not to "improve" the courses.
