A first in mainline theological education: UDTS graduates first on-line M.Div. cohort this weekend

Between our residential students and our first class of "distance ed" students, this will be a big class. The distance cohort, by the way, has been at this for five years. Yours truly will MC the senior banquet. (Don't worry, Billy Crystal. Your job is safe.) We will also welcome President Barbara Wheeler of Auburn Seminary to deliver the commencement address.

Meanwhile, note in this article by Glenn Reynolds discussing the trend toward online education that the likes of MIT and Harvard are just getting started.
