Mode Neutral Pedagogy

There appears to be a new movement developing in which courses are designed as "delivery mode neutral." That is, that the design of on ground, blended and online classes can fully utilize the same tool set so that students can move from one mode to another. Even if distant students cannot move among the modes, this approach helps to assure that content and experiences in classes delivered through the different modes are equivalent. The article linked to the title of this posting is one of the first in this area.
