In the 1990s early days of the World Wide Web I started teaching an online screenwriting class for Writers on the Net. Students wanted credit. I approached every college/university in Portland about giving credit for my class. No one was ready to embrace online classes.
I was disgusted. I was already doing it! I got a lead on EOU ... in less than a month I had a contract and started immediately! They were so far ahead of the curve.
Sad to learn they are fighting for their existence.
