I'm a believer in online technology in education.
I think we have learned enough about this to understand that it will be transformative. It's going to change the world, and it's going to change the way we think about education. [...] This can all ad up to big changes in how we think about a university education. Could you imagine a situation where students do some of their degree work remotely and then do some on campus, particularly the small, experiential classes that don't transfer well to online?
