DeMillo RA. Abelard to Apple : the fate of American colleges and universities. Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press; 2011. Abstract

Demillo "describes the evolving model for higher education, from European universities based on a medieval model to American land-grant colleges to Apple's iTunes U and MIT's OpenCourseWare. He offers ten rules to help colleges reinvent themselves (including 'Don't romanticize your weaknesses') and argues for a focus on teaching undergraduates."
