What's St. Cloud's Potter doing with online education?

St. Cloud State University sounds like it's working on some sort of boost in how it and the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) system provides online education.

President Earl Potter is teaming up with Provost Devinder Malhotra to "reinvent" the online game, the school announced yesterday.

In a news release, Malhotra says:
