What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This book is purportedly about technology. . . . Yet I think that is too modest a claim. There is, to be sure, a great deal of reference to technology . . . and much of it will be informative and useful, as the authors hope. But the heart of this volume is a plea for us to fundamentally rethink the enterprise of higher education."
—George Mehaffy, Vice President, American Association of State Colleges and Universities
