Dear Members of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation:

We read with interest your recent paper, “CIC Online Learning Collaboration: A Vision and Framework [http://www.cic.net/docs/default-source/reports/cic-online-learning-collaboration.pdf?sfvrsn=2],” and the Inside Higher Ed coverage of it [http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2013/06/19/big-10-provosts-question-partnerships-ed-tech-companies#.UcGeqhW1_FY.email.].

It is good that a group of chief academic officers have foregrounded educational considerations and called for careful deliberation in the area of MOOCs and distance education.

That is a welcome break from the bandwagon-jumping and rush without judgment that has characterized the actions of too many institutions in this realm, and it marks a welcome administrative analogue to the thoughtful deliberations of faculty at Amherst College, Duke University, and San Jose State University on these matters.
