Do online college classes do more harm than good?

Linn-Benton Community College students, faculty, and extended community members are invited to join a respectful conversation touching all sides of the controversial proposition: Online college classes do more harm than good. Braver Angels debates are non-confrontational and not a competition, but are designed to encourage participants to think deeply, express their opinions, and gain greater insight into others' points of view.

Conceived and planned with the LBCC Civil Discourse Program, this debate is brought to you with the support of a partnership of Braver AngelsBridgeUSA, and the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA), non-profit organizations that believe in the power of free expression and respectful exchange of ideas on America's college campuses.
