Not everything needs to be hot off the press. I recently ran across the Brainpickings.org site. It has an article from April 2011.

For something a bit different, check out RSA’s animate video (amazing to watch)
Another blog post from Online Universities on Jul 17, 2012 discusses 10 Best Books on the Future of Higher Ed.
