Not all students can learn efficiently over the Internet. Different people learn different ways. Visual and auditory learners do better than kinesthetic learners, who learn by doing. Individual learners and social learners have different needs. Public, private, hybrid and community approaches can be taken.
Traditional universities can benefit from integration with major online organizations by providing meeting facilities where students can gather to assist each other. This could include laboratory facilities and teaching assistants for chemistry, physics and biology courses. However, they must do so at a price affordable, if not free, to students. If traditional institutions do not adjust to this model, they will find the private sector providing these services at very minimal costs. Furthermore, support services for remote or isolated students will be developed and marketed on a global scale.
Just as an airplane can outmaneuver a ship at sea, a country, based on this educational system, can outmaneuver a nation locked into an education system designed to train workers for the Industrial Revolution. Indeed, this is a foundation built between the years 1088 and 1209. The basis of the new system is here, waiting for the catalyst to trigger the reaction — a reaction that will transform education overnight. Otherwise, it will take the post-millennial generation to do it. Each generation seeks to redress the perceived errors of its predecessor.
