The Chronicle of Higher Education featured an interview with C21U’s Rich DeMillo and Paul Baker. The interview discusses C21U's perspective on how traditional universities can avoid becoming "bystanders" to the higher education revolution. Ideas such as the TechBurst, Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs), and the Ed Value Index are the kinds of projects C21U has undertaken to enhance innovation in higher education.
The New York Times mentioned C21U's Change 11 Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) in its article "Instruction for Masses Knocks Down Campus Walls" about MOOCs and other innovative forms of open learning. The article reports on C21U’s plans to offer a Massively Open Online Seminar (MOOSe) in the upcoming school year.
The Guardian featured an article, "Following the US Lead in HE Could Spell Disaster for the UK," written by C21U's Director Rich DeMillo. In the articles, DeMillo argues college rankings are a poor indicator of educational effectiveness.
