As educators, we should be in the forefront of challenging and changing paradigms, especially those that pertain to education. Our pedagogy is being challenged right now as many schools are offering FREE online classes — from art history, anthropology and literature to engineering, biology, and math. Schools in the forefront include Johns Hopkins, MIT, Harvard, U of Michigan, UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Stanford and Yale.

How should we begin to take advantage of these great FREE gifts?
