"Interest in using the internet to slash the price of higher education is being
driven in part by hope for new methods of teaching, but also by frustration
with the existing system. The biggest threat those of us working in colleges
and universities face isn’t video lectures or online tests. It’s the fact that
we live in institutions perfectly adapted to an environment that no longer
exists."

Another fascinating article.
