Ball State University has put together a task force of faculty members, a couple of students and a dean to look at how the internet is changing higher education. Provost Terry King said the internet has led to major changes in communication, traditional media and social media. He said despite ready availability of many things online, students must differentiate between information and knowledge. Some disciplines students study are more internet-friendly, while others like design and architecture require more personal interaction. The task force could have a report ready at the end of semester. King said newer for-profit colleges base their profits on what can be taught online.
