If Every School is Online, Why Can’t I Find the Classes on Google?

On February 5, the NY Times published an article on the importance of student engagement in online learning.  The article discussed several universities that have invested thousands of hours in building high quality online courses that could stand on the own without a classroom.

What struck me, however, were the comments on aggregation of online content.  The largest site the author could find had 150 (!) total classes.  Really!?  With a torrent of online courses — both synchronous and asynchronous — there seems to be no way to get to actually find them.
