The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
Across the Atlantic, the discussion about online courses and their potential to restructure higher education has been raging for some time. Courses are structured as weekly online conferences; communication with the course tutor and other learners takes place in a virtual learning environment. The online courses are intended to fit around your calendar; you access the course whenever it is suitable for you.
