Can colleges and universities effectively pursue massive online learning while maintaining their core academic missions? Issues surrounding the quality of courses, their cost effectiveness, student learning outcomes, credentialing, and equal access to education have provoked a spirited and evolving international debate. Penn President Amy Gutmann moderated the 2013 David and Lyn Silfen University Forum, welcoming New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning Columnist Thomas Friedman, The Honorable Martha J. Kanter, under secretary, U.S. Department of Education, and Brit Kirwan, chancellor, University of Maryland System.
