The College Bubble will pop soon.


The College Bubble will pop soon. The live lecture is dying, and already irrelevant.

When shopping is more convenient, more people shop. When people can take their lecture classes on demand, more people can be educated. Waking up early to race to a packed lecture hall full of sleepy uncomfortable students... that's a very inefficient disruption of time and energy that could be used more productively, or simply enjoyed.

Schools might finally push humanity forward by imparting lessons of productivity and efficiency, by honoring it in the education model.
