Online skepticism

While my classmates in TT1531 are probably hung ho for teaching online, there is much skepticism about it in higher ed circles.  I see both points of view.  This article in Higher Ed addresses a survey about faculty attitudes towards online teaching.  I notice that administration generally views outcomes more positively than faculty.  And those who teach online are more positive than those who have never tried doing so.  I think online will become more effective as it crosses technological hurdles, but there are still many hurdles to cross.
