    “To give them the kind of education we got” - I certainly hope these 3rd world people DON’T get that. The world today needs drastically different models of education, not a mass media regurgitation and a cost-saving professor-to-student ratio of thousands to one.

    Here we have unimaginative capitalism at its best: the existing model is running out of room to grow profits, so instead of innovating the pedagogy itself, you simply piggyback on existing technology to cut costs and expand the addressable market.

    The big problem is the governments monopoly on education and higher education. We are squandering our wealth sending all these kids to school on government loans and they graduate with a mortgage but no house and no marketable skills..what we have to do is stop the government aid and then colleges will be forced to cut costs so that their students can afford to go..many of those students will then be able to work their way through college like the old days. The government subsidies benefit the educational establishment who can then charge more money, enriching themselves even more at the expense of the student who gets stuck with debt.

    Be careful we are talking about formal education but there are other forms of education, because I do believe that universities formats are no longer the good ones, we need to restudy the whole concept and not push develop.. countries in that direction of just a prof lecturing and students listening without a word...

    Re: the cell phone......I hope not!!!! It will work better if the phone and internet companies stop charging separately for phone service and lap top service. It's ridiculous to pay separately for these.

    You can never teach creative thinking through a cell phone. Period.

      You don't teach creative thinking. You harbor an environment in which it manifests.

    Absolutely agree MOOCs are a super disrupter of higher education, it does increase scale and accessibility via low to zero costs and geographic ease of use a person in the Gaza Strip Palestine can take a course in the US on their dream topic it is fantastic and very democratic. As well most teachers love to teacher and share info. thus they are inspired to create interesting, interactive, fun online videos which students watch. The instructor I had was fantastic, his videos were fun and highly insightful to listen too.
