Thomas Edison College Courses Proposal

There was an interesting column yesterday by Bob Braun of the Star-Ledger in New Jersey. It seems that Thomas Edison College is lobbying members of Congress for funding to put their entire catalog of over 250 courses on flash drives, mainly for the military who are overseas with no Internet connectivity.

This is an interesting proposal with a number of challenges even for the most serious learner, but I wonder if they are aware that flash drives are not allowed by the military due to security concerns. It would be good if they and the members of Congress would look into that issue before considering funding.

Check out his column as there are some interesting comments.
