Two months ago, to take a course from the University of Pennsylvania's medical school, you needed to excel at a grueling admissions test and pray you were one of the few who got accepted - not to mention pay tuition once you got there. Now you can stumble out of bed halfway around the world and still catch courses taught by Penn medical professors. All for free, at the moment. Both the medical school and the university are amping up their participation in the online education game.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - Gov. Chris Christie signed a major higher-education reorganization bill on Wednesday, a hard-won political and policy victory that eluded two prior governors and is designed to create regional centers of academic excellence in South, Central and North Jersey. Christie said that the bill "brings a new era to higher education in the state" by dissolving the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and shifting its assets to Rutgers and Rowan universities, enhancing the footprint of both schools.

Moments after griping with a neighbor about Camden's crime surge, Lawrence Taylor spots a woman in a bikini top and jeans shorts checking her makeup in the tinted window of a car parked across the street. Prostitutes "are just front and center now," says Taylor, 47, who lives in the Cooper Plaza neighborhood. It's the middle of the day, and a half-block away, hundreds of powerful New Jerseyans are celebrating the opening of Cooper Medical School of Rowan University - a beacon of hope, they say, in the impoverished city.

ARTHUR SNYDER was so athletic in his youth that he entertained serious thoughts about a career in physical education. The idea was derailed when he was stricken with appendicitis while in middle school. He always attributed his decision to become a physician to his appendicitis attack. This Depression-era kid, the son of immigrants from Russia, managed to get himself through college and medical school and launch a career in pediatrics, treating sick kids from here to Florida in a 50-year career that also included passing his knowledge and wisdom on to new generations as a teacher.

A mail room without mailboxes. A library with few hard copies of books and magazines. Gleaming metal tables for dissecting cadavers, with flat-screen monitors overhead. And just one lecture hall, which its users will try to avoid as much as possible. These are just a few hallmarks of the changing way that new doctors will learn their trade, at least in Camden. Tuesday marks the grand opening for Cooper Medical School of Rowan University and its new, publicly funded, $139 million building.

TRENTON - New Jersey lawmakers negotiated late changes Monday to legislation restructuring the state university system, less than a week from Gov. Christie's deadline of Sunday for a deal.

TRENTON - A far-reaching plan to overhaul New Jersey's higher education system will be heard in the Assembly next week, as a faction of Democrats trying to delay the fast-moving legislation fractured Friday. The Assembly Budget Committee will hear the bill Monday, along with a companion measure that would ask voters to approve $750 million in borrowing for higher education. Final votes in the Assembly and Senate could come next week. The Assembly hearing was announced a day after nine Democrats led by former Majority Leader Jose[h Cryan threatened to withhold their votes for the state budget proposed by the majority Democrats unless Speaker Sheila Oliver stalled the merger bill.

Six weeks after Gov. Christie came to Camden to sign the Urban Hope Act - opening the doors for nonprofits to build and run mostly publicly funded schools in the state's poorest and lowest-performing districts - one Philadelphia development company had already started to dig for documents. KMS Development Partners - a construction consultant working with the Cooper Foundation, the charitable arm of Cooper University Hospital - filed an Open Public Records request to the state Schools Development Authority on Feb. 27 asking for drawings and specifications for the "proposed Lanning Square School," whose construction the state pushed off its priority list after Christie came into office in 2010.
