In what ways can MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course) change higher education? Can online education ever replace college (why or why not)?
I believe that it can replace a college education. The main reason because most of the face to face classes that we are forced to take are irreverent to real life situation. Even the course that are based on our degrees has a lot that it lacks in. I believe that you learn based on real life experiences, and that many jobs that are out there you learn by doing it. Yes I know someone who not be trained to operate on a person without a medical degree, and I am not saying that it will replace all degrees and colleges, all I am simply saying is that, in some cases a degree is not needed and all you are doing as the student is digging your self into a financial hole with all the school loans.
