The Making of a Virtual Professor
Richard B. Kettner-Polley
Professor of Business Administration
International School of Information Management University

ABSTRACT

The role of the professor is changing dramatically. Lectures endure despite the fact that they were outmoded as soon as books became readily available to students. This is a case study in the transformation of one traditional professor into a virtual professor. On one level this is only one person’s story. On another level it is a sign of the times. Jorge Klor de Alva’s choice to leave one of the most prestigious universities in the country for the University of Phoenix is a signal event. Traditional academia will change, and it is the quiet transformation of traditional professors into virtual professors that tells the true story behind this revolution.

Degree Net

Degree.net Central

Welcome to Degree.net: the web’s number one resource for information on distance learning, provided by John Bear, Ph.D., author of the long-time best-selling Bears’ Guide to Earning Degrees Nontraditionally.

Distance learning is a booming field: More and more schools are making it possible for people to get the degree they want or need without ever setting foot on a college campus. It can also be a baffling field, fraught with misinformation, false expectations, complexities such as accreditation, and outright dangers such as diploma mills.
Degree.net is here to help make distance learning less baffling and more booming. We’re here to demystify accreditation, identify diploma mills, report on the latest developments in the industry, and, most importantly, help distance learners and good distance learning schools to find each other.
