In the past 20 years, Stanford has only established two Vice Provost offices, for undergraduate and graduate education, both of which “fundamentally reshaped education at Stanford.” University spokeswoman Lisa Lapin tells me the Vice Provost for Online Learning intends to do the same.

The University says around 15 courses, taught by Stanford faculty in engineering, mathematics, social science, entrepreneurship, and education, will be offered online in the fall quarter, with more coming in winter and spring. The deans of the schools of Medicine, Engineering and Business have selected faculty members to focus on online learning

Stanford has had classes on Coursera, founded by Stanford CS professors on leave, for the past year, attracting hundreds of thousands of students from around the world.
