Insight Scoop: "Jesuit Father Joseph Fessio is back in the captain’s chair and launching another ship."

The post links to a promotion at Ignatius Press of the new academic program and a NCRegister article.

After the failure of Campion College, and the end of his administrative duties at Ave Maria University, Fr. Fessio is starting a new Catholic distance-learning program. While it addresses the rising costs of a college education, which are associated with the higher-ed bubble, is it able to market itself as a necessity for Catholic young adults? Who is adapting to a post-Carbon world? (The same sort of criticisms could be levelled at MIT's offering of videos of lectures and such.)
