Critical Questions? What is the role of Minnesota Online in serving - the Learner? the Campus? the System? the State? How does Minnesota Online overcome fear of loss of local campus autonomy? Where does this fit among all the other priorities, especially with declining state allocations? How do we continue to innovate?
